On behalf of the York Simcoe Express Executives and Board of Directors, I wanted to thank everyone who participated in the 2nd annual winter clothing drive.
Jackie Tranter, a member of the Community Relations Committee and parent spearheaded this initiative again and I thank her for her hard work. I also thank everyone who assisted in this initiative including those who facilitated, organized, and donated with a shared vison.
With this "one team" approach it demonstrates our ability to make a difference in other people’s lives.
In a short period of time the following quality used items were delivered to people who were in need of these items.
• 154 – Children’s coats
• 46 - Children’s snow pants
• 36 - Children’s boots/ shoes
• 77 - Women’s coats
• 45 - Women’s boots/ shoes
• 98 - Men’s coats
• 51 - Men’s boots/ shoes
Plus 4 large bags of hats, mitts, scarves, hoodies, etc.
A large donation was also organized through Nikki SIMEONE from the Central York Panthers Atom A team. Thank you for your generosity. The winter clothing drive was a huge success with a substantial increase of donations in comparison to last year and I thank everyone for participating.
