The team at RE/MAX Williams Lake Realty was overwhelmed by the community spirit of lakecity residents Friday, Dec. 18 when the business hosted its seventh annual Cozy Coat Campaign.
“It’s always amazing the generosity of people,” RE/MAX Williams Lake Realty owner Court Smith said. “We’re always blown away.”
A table, and bags, stacked with winter clothing items including jackets, toques, boots, blankets, gloves and scarves, were the result of the collection, and will be donated to the Salvation Army in Williams Lake.
Fellow RE/MAX Williams Lake Realty owner Pauline Smith said they weren’t sure how successful the event would be this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however, that wasn’t the case.
“Some people even went out and bought brand new jackets and pants for little ones, so we’re just amazed at the generosity,” Pauline said.
“Good on the community.”
While those dropping off items were invited to accept a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and a donut, most declined, Smith said, noting they just wanted to help out.
