2020 is expected to be significantly colder this winter, and the pandemic has affected many organizations working with people with lived experience of homelessness. The Downtown Community Court in Vancouver is currently looking for winter donations of blankets and other warm items including:
- Sleeping bags
- Bedding (sheets, mattress pads – for those lucky enough to get housed)
- Gloves, mostly for men (so med-large sizes)
- A few pillows (to go with the blankets)
- Any reusable/waterproof bags or larger shopping bags (to carry their belongings in).
