Providing some warmth for cold winter ahead

The Centre For Inquiry is putting their money where their mouth is by organizing a winter coat drive.

Any donated gently used coats, sweaters, snowpants, mittens or blankets will be accepted or picked up by CFI staff. The donated clothing will be given to Inn From The Cold and the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club.

Anyone wishing to make a donation can contact  Zena Ryder at 250-868-1473 or email at octopus@ryders.ca.

The Centre For Inquiry is an educational charity with a legal mandate to educate and provide training to the public in the application of skeptical, secular, rational and humanistic inquiry through conferences published works and the maintenance of a library.

“This is supposed to be a very long, very cold winter, and each and all donations are greatly appreciated,” said CFI spokesperson Michelle Richards.
