Furniture and home decor retailer Urban Barn is spreading warmth to those in need this Christmas with its Blanket the Country in Warmth campaign.
Until Dec. 14, with every $5 in-store donation, a brand new fleece blanket will be donated to a local shelter within the community. In Nanaimo, the donation drive will support Island Crisis Care Society’s Samaritan House.
“We love being able to come together as a community to show our support and care during a busy time of year when many are forgotten about,” said Courtney Henn, store manager at Urban Barn’s Country Club Centre location.
Island Crisis Care Society is a non-profit that helps people in crisis find the support, resources and services they need to recover and be well. For more information, please visit www.iccare.ca.
