Blanket drive helps charity

NANAIMO – Urban Barn is spreading warmth to those in need this Christmas with its Blanket the Country in Warmth campaign

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.
