Every winter some families in Northern Ontario have to choose between warmth and food…an annual clothing drive continues their work to change that.

The Winter Clothing Drive powered by Cooper Equipment Rentals is back looking to build on last year where over four thousand families in Greater Sudbury were helped.

Derek Cashmore with Cooper Equipment Rentals talked about what they are looking for.

Cashmore says they surpassed their collection goal last year but it was still not enough.

A list of donation locations can be found on our website.

Donations will be accepted until early November and then a Open House public distribution will be held November 13th to the 17th at the Southridge Mall.
