Stepping Stones, the Nelson based emergency shelter serving the West Kootenay area, is holding a blanket drive.
Between now and March 15, Stepping Stones is requesting donations of sleeping bags, blankets and camping gear. With the cooler weather there are more people requesting warm blankets and our stock is now depleted.
If you have new or slightly used sleeping bags, single- or double-sized blankets (wool preferably), tents or camping gear and would like to donate, please drop off at 816 Vernon St. Donations of these specific items will be greatly appreciated and we thank all those people in the community that continue to support and donate to Stepping Stones.
Stepping Stones is a program of the Nelson CARES Society and has been in operation in Nelson since December 2004. For more information, contact Stepping Stones by phoning 250-352-9876 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
