Red Deer Clothing Bank president Shirley Berry stocks the rack with men’s coats at the Clothing Bank on Tuesday. After putting out a plea for more men’s clothing the bank was able to add to their supplies Tuesday morning but remains short of men’s coats and cold weather clothing. “We only had six jackets and four coats this morning” said Berry who is appealing to the community to donate their unwanted clothing to the Red Deer Clothing Bank. “It’s not cold yet but it is very cold for many people coming to Alberta,” Berry said referring to people moving here from warmer climates like the Philippines and Mexico. Along with winter coats and jackets the clothing bank always needs more men’s clothing. To make a donation contact the clothing bank at 403 347 6909 or visit the clothing bank at 5005 Ross St.
