Posted on 09/23/2019

The Orillia Learning Centre is teaming up with Simcoe Shores SS (Orillia) and the Champlain Seniors Service Club, in partnership with Fabricare Cleaning Center (Orillia) for their 10th Annual Winter Coat Drive. Donations of gently used winter coats can be dropped off from Sept. 20 to Oct. 25 during regular business hours at the following locations:

  • Learning Centres, Orillia - 575 West St. S., Unit 15, Orillia; Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Fabricare Cleaning Center - 36 Front St. S., Orillia
  • Wihlidal Family Chiropractic - 349 West St. N., Orillia – call 705-325-6425
  • St. Paul’s United Church – 62 Peter St. N. (door closest to parking lot; Monday - Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.)

All coats will be cleaned prior to distribution. Coats are needed in all sizes (infant, child, teen and adult), but especially for small children and men’s large. Please note that fur or leather coats cannot be accepted because of specialized cleaning requirements.

All donated winter coats will be distributed at no charge to Learning Centre students, Simcoe Shores SS students and to Orillia and area residents from Nov. 1 to Dec. 19, Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Orillia Learning Centre. Remaining coats will be donated to community resource affiliates.

This initiative links directly to the SCDSB's Strategic Priorities under the pillars of community and well-being.
