Sutton-Cariboo Realty is hosting a warm and fuzzy open house all next week to collect warm clothing for people in need this winter.

The real estate agency is collecting gently used coats, boots, gloves, toques and blankets for children and adults.

“It’s kind of nice to be able to clean out your closet and know that what you are donating is going for a good cause,” says realtor Pauline Colgate-Smith.

She says there will be free coffee, hot chocolate, donuts and muffins for visitors coming in with the warming donations that will be delivered to the Salvation Army for distribution to people in need.

She says visitors to their open house can also drop off non-perishable food items and new toys and gifts for children and teens that will be distributed by the Salvation Army as part of its annual Christmas cheer program.

Sutton-Cariboo Realty is located at 232 B North Third Avenue in the former Hollywood Video just past 7-Eleven.

Donations can be dropped off between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, December 15 to 19.
