Annual Snowsuit Drive
This year celebrates the 32nd anniversary of the Lanark County Snowsuit Campaign and we are pleased to assist Family and Children’s Services of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville (FCSLLG) with this community initiative. The goal of the campaign is to ensure that all children and youth in our community have a warm winter jacket or snowsuit. Last year over 524 snowsuits and or winter jackets were distributed.
Please donate your gently used clean winter jackets and snowsuits in the drop off box located at the school by Friday, October 27, 2017. Volunteers are always welcome. Financial donations are also greatly appreciated. Our collective efforts can make a significant difference.
Any child or youth under the age of 18 who might not otherwise have warm winter outerwear is eligible to receive a snowsuit or winter jacket. To receive your winter outerwear all you have to do is go to the distribution centre in your community on one of the two Saturday’s listed below.
Distribution Day will take place on two Saturday’s, October 28th and November 4th, 2017 between 9am and 12pm with three locations for pick up – Carlton Place Baptist Church, 299 Bridge St. Carleton Place, FCSLLG 8 Herriot St., Perth, and the Gallipeau Centre, Smiths Falls.
