The Orillia Learning Centre has more than 1,200 reasons to say thank you!

In October and November 2015 the Orillia Learning Centre held their 6th annual Winter Coat Drive. Read on for a message of thanks from the staff and students.

Our 6th annual coat drive was very successful with the collection and distribution of more than 1,200 warm winter coats to Orillia and surrounding communities!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all who made this possible. Due to the generosity of our partner Fabricare Cleaning Centre, each coat was cleaned prior to being donated.

A big thank you to the Simcoe County District School Board, KICX 106, Sunshine 89.1, Rock 95, 104.1 The Dock, Orillia Packet & Times, Orillia Today, CTV News Barrie, Information Orillia and the Coffee Time Network.  Thank you to Tiffany Party Rentals (Barrie) for lending coat racks for organization and display and to the Wihlidal Family Chiropractic Clinic for providing a dropoff site for the coat donations.

Thank you to the residents of Orillia and outlying communities for their donations of warm winter coats. Many families were kept warm this winter by your contributions.

We look forward to our 7th Annual Coat Drive. We will be collecting coats from October 11 to November 30, 2016.
