Pembina and United Way of Northern British Columbia launch Winter clothing drive

With the turn of the calendar to October and the weather systems taking on their fall approach, residents of the North Coast are being asked to go through their closets and lend a hand towards a winter clothing drive in the area.

The most recent project is being led by Pembina Energy's Prince Rupert office on third Avenue West, which will serve as a collection point for residents wishing to drop off their warm clothing for use by Prince Rupert's growing homeless population.

A collection drop off box has been put in place at the Alberta energy company's office on the ground floor of the Capitol Theatre building in the 500 block of Third West.

The items that make for the most need are jackets, boots, scarves, toques, mitts and gloves, as well as wool socks

They also will accept other items of clothing such as jeans and sweaters, though they ask that they be new, or gently used and clean as you drop them off.

You can find out more about the program and arrange a pick up of clothes if required by contacting Nikita at 250-624-2950

Pembina is currently constructing an LPG export terminal on Watson Island.
