Kendra Johnston and Maddi McKitrick of the Downtown BIA are bundled up against the cold as they prepare for Turn Down the Heat Week, Feb. 1-8.
Fortis BC and 21 business improvement areas across B.C. are teaming up to raise awareness about energy conservation while also making the winter weather a little more comfortable for those in need. Participating businesses are turning down their thermostats for the week, as well as collecting sweaters and jackets for The Lookout Society. Last year more than 100 sweaters were donated, and 5,000 were donated to various charities across B.C.
For a list of businesses where sweaters can be dropped off until Feb. 9, go to www.downtownnewwest.ca.
