Realtors and staff at Border Country Realty have already begun their 2022 ‘Coats for Kids’ Christmas campaign.
This will be their 26th anniversary since the campaign was originally introduced by former broker Sharon Marshall. Although the program began with mainly coats for kids, the campaign has expanded to include coats for adults, as well as winter attire such as mitts, scarves and toques.
This year’s time and location for give-away will be at ‘Youth with a Mission Society’, 7525 4th Street,(behind Save-On Foods), on December 9 and 10, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. All donations will be greatly appreciated, helping insure that everyone in our community remains warm and safe throughout the winter.
Coats and winter attire may be dropped off at Border Country Realty, 347 Market Ave., Grand Forks.
