17 bags on Nov.25 means 71 bags total!

Hey guys,

Remember how on Tuesday we collected nine bags of clothing donations from 102.3 Now! Radio? Well, today, we picked up 12 more!

Thanks to the generosity of the station and their dedicated #NOWfamily, we have collected 36 bags from Now! Radio since opening up our #bundleupyeg box there on Nov.1 – that is half of our total donations collected!

We also picked up another five bags absolutely stuffed with warm coats, mitts and toques that have been freshly cleaned (thank you Debra)!

All of today’s donations bring the #bundleupyeg grand total to 71 bags of warm winter clothing. 53 has have been delivered so far to the Bissell Centre and Hope Mission. We will get the remaining bags out to Boyle Street in the next few days!

Here’s a snapshot of the donations collected today by the incredible Bill and Maria Franklin. These two have been a huge part of this years success in being able to pickup donations during the day while Jasmine and Ryan are working. Today alone they collected 17 bags! We love you guys! (Arnt my parents the cutest?)

With one more month to go (#bundleupyeg is collecting clothing donations until Dec.25), we are in amazing shape of hitting our 130 bag goal. Let’s keep this going!

Thank you!
