“Kindness Kits” for the Homeless

Winter is in full swing in Kamloops…

Staying warm at this time of year is a luxury many of us take for granted. With overnight lows now dipping close to the freezing mark, it’s easy enough to put on a few extra layers and bundle up to keep warm.

For the city’s homeless and low-income residents, it’s almost impossible to keep the cold away.

The days and nights are getting colder and for those that are living on the streets, the low temperatures can mean the difference between life and death.

On behalf of Second Chances Thrift Store in Kamloops, BC, we are selling ‘Kindness Kits’ here at our clinic to help those that are less fortunate. These kits contain good quality warm clothing for a man, woman or child. The value of each kit is at least $50 retail.

The kits have been carefully assembled by Second Chance volunteers and have been sized and checked for good zippers and warmth and quality! The kits can be purchased for a minimum donation of $6, and all of the proceeds benefit the BC SPCA Kamloops & District Branch. This way both the animals and the homeless community benefit.

Kits can be taken with you to give to someone in need or Second Chances Thrift Store will donate them on your behalf to JUMP Kamloops, ASK Wellness or another organization of your choice.

We are pleased to be helping out our community this way, and thank everyone that has already provided your support!!

If you have any questions about the “Kindness Kits” program, please call our office at 250-374-1485 or Second Chances Thrift Store at 236-425-1516.
