The North Shore Numismatic Society (NSNS) has revived its annual “Helping the Homeless” clothing drive, which the Vancouver-based club was forced to suspend last year due to COVID-19.
“Because conditions have improved this year, your club is again collecting winter clothing to assist the homeless,” said NSNS President Michael Souza. “If you have any clean winter clothing that you no longer use, please consider donating them to our cause to assist some of the less fortunate in our society. In particular, we especially need gloves, toques, jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts and blankets.”
NSNS past president Lynn Balmer’s son, a firefighter, has headed this initiative since 2018.
Vancouver-area residents who have any clothing to donate are urged to contact Balmer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Balmer will arrange to pick up the clothing.
“Thank you for your anticipated generosity,” Souza added.
