Veyron Properties Group donated over 165 warm coats and over 100 sweaters, scarves, boots, blankets and clothing to donate to the Salvation Army.

Campbell River, Courtenay tenants answer the call to help Salvation Army

Veyron Properties Group heard the Salvation Army was in desperate need of warm coats and items for those less fortunate.

So they asked their Community Within consisting of five apartments buildings in Campbell River and two in Courtenay to donate any items they may have. They were overwhelmed with their giving spirit and desire to help those less fortunate.

There were over 165 warm coats collected, over 100 sweaters, scarves, boots, blankets and clothing. Some residents went to work and knitted toques and mitts to donate as well.

All donations were given to the Salvation Army who will give them out for free to those in need.

If anyone else has donations of warm coats and clothing for the Salvation Army contact Sydney Crawford, Veyron Community Relations/Property Manager at 250-202-5619 or 250-926-5501 or email
