SPUD citizens of Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton!
We are having a coat drive to help those who have a little less this winter. You can contribute to the holiday spirit by placing new or lightly used coats, jackets, scarves, and gloves in your bin for the next few weeks and our keen drivers will pick them up for you and make sure they are donated directly to the charity SPUD has partnered with in your area.
As part of our SPUD mission, we emphasize the importance of community engagement and we know you value this too. We know SPUD customers truly value the well being of their local neighbourhoods and cities. We want to make sure everyone has a warm coat and gloves this winter, so please take a look through your closet- those old jackets you never use, or gloves that are just too big would make the difference for someone.
Reach out to your neighbours, friends, and family, the more clothing the better. We want to make giving easy for you.
We are partnering with separate charities for each of our four locations. Here are the charities being donated to in your communities:
Vancouver: Union Gospel Mission.
Calgary: Project Warmth.
Edmonton: The Bissell Centre.
Victoria– stay tuned! We are preparing for a food drive.
