CLOVERDALE – A clothing drive this Saturday (Dec. 6) will raise funds for an envisioned community centre and shelter for homeless and low-income people.
Dubbed "The Living Room Society" project, the planned facility will include a living room area with free snacks, shower and laundry facilities and a minimum 10-bed shelter.
The Rick and Sue Diamond Foundation dreamed up the initiative. It’s hoped the project will launch in 2015 in Surrey, and will likely be located in Whalley.
The clothing drive will run from noon to 5 p.m. this Saturday at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds in the Cover All Building, the big white tent next to the Agriplex. Hot dogs and hot chocolate will be available, by donation.
Clothing, toys, shoes, linens and small house appliances will be accepted.
