The Vancouver Giants, CKNW and the Salvation Army would like to thank everyone who donated to our Giant CKNW Coat Drive at Friday night’s game!
In total, 115 jackets and 2 sleeping bags were donated, and this included items for men, women and children. Those donations will now be distributed through the Salvation Army Harbour Light drop-in ministry, which sees anywhere from 50 – 200 people per day of all ages stop in for shelter from the rain and cold.
Kudos and thanks to everyone who took part!
