For those who would like to contribute but are unable to make it to the drive-thru, the event is actually the end of a month-long opportunity to donate – donations will be accepted at the detachment from Monday to Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., from Nov. 1 through to Dec. 1.

Items sought for kids aged three to 18 years old include winter and rain jackets, as well as boots, sweaters, toques and gloves. Cash donations are also welcomed.

On Nov. 27, Safety Bear and Santa will be on-site greeting guests, and Little oOties Mini Donuts will be there selling bags of donuts, with a portion of those sales to also benefit the fundraiser.

Those planning to attend the fourth-annual affair are asked to wear a mask.
