CMA Clothes Donation Drive

22nd Jan 2022

 

Calgary Marathi Association in partnership with The Mustard Seed is organizing a clothing drive for their clients.

With Alberta winter taking a stronghold in Calgary, we are all grateful for warm shelter, clothing and food at this festive time of the year.
Life is not fair to everyone and there are others who don’t have these bare necessities.

We are looking for warm clothing like winter jackets for adults and any other donations as listed in the link below:

The timeline for the donation gathering is from Jan 22 to 28, 2022

We are looking for “host” volunteers that live in a detached family home and can store the donations in the garage or basement or spare room in the house until the day of delivery
