For the month of October, Trinity Anglican Church and the Community can support Inn from the Cold’s ‘Drop your Drawers’ campaign. This helps Inn from the Cold prepare for the upcoming Shelter season which runs from November until mid-April. Underwear and socks are among the least donated items, but most needed! Throughout the month of October, there will be a marked drop box at the south doors opposite the food bank drop box, where people can donate new pairs of men’s and women’s underwear (most needed are S, M, and L) or socks. As well, during the week, the church is also able to receive donations from the Community, Thursday and Saturday from 9:30 am until 12:30 pm, when the Second Hand Shop is open.
