LETTER: Thanks from Nelson CARES

From Nelson CARES

Nelson CARES’ emergency housing services program would like to send out a big thank you to the community for all your generosity. Over the past few months Stepping Stones Emergency Shelter has received an overwhelming amount of donations. Items received included men’s clothing, warm blankets, towels, winter jackets, toques, gloves, socks camping gear, and in-kind cash donations among many other things.

We are so grateful to live in a place where our program is supported and the community’s contributions not only support our individuals to help stay warm. Your kindness also warms the hearts of our front-line staff. We are so fortunate to be able to provide people with their basic needs and distribute the amazing, donated items. Thanks to you! Your thoughtful consideration and efforts make our residents feel seen and cared for and we couldn’t do this without you.

Stepping Stones will continue to accept donations of winter jackets, men’s small/medium pants, blankets/sleeping bags, gloves, mitts, socks, camping gear/tents and sleeping mats.

If you have something you would like to donate, please call 250-354-9876 before dropping off to ensure we have capacity to accept items. We accept quality items and ask that clothing that is damaged or stained be recycled. Treating people with dignity and respect is at the foreront of our service and we want to ensure that our clients are receiving the most effective items.
