Mix 96.5 – Coats for a Cause – UPDATE!!

Our coats for a Cause was a great success!

UDFC collected more than 100 coats to donate for the Mix 96.5 Coats for a Cause!

Thank you to everyone who donated, you have made a huge difference in someone’s life and made this cold winter a little warmer.

UDFC


As our friends at Mix 96.5 say, the season of giving never stops!

We would like to invite all of our United DFC family, along with friends, to help us support a great, local cause.

By supporting Coats for a Cause with Mix 96-5, we can help so many more people stay warm this winter.

All coats will go to Parker Street Food & Furniture Bank to help those in need this winter. And for every coat turned in, Casino Nova Scotia will donate $5 per coat, up to a max of $5000!

Donate your old winter coat, or pick up a new one! Winter hats, gloves, mittens, scarves and socks are also great ideas that would not be turned away!

Coats can be dropped off from now until Friday, Jan 25th at the United DFC office

All donations collected will be brought to the live Coats for a Cause event on Saturday, January 26th from 10 am to 3 pm at Mic Mac Mall.

Let’s help Mix 96.5 keep the season of giving going.  We thank you!
