Penticton blanket drive generates heartwarming response

Sheri Raposo and Kim Ehlers model some of the hundreds of coats collected during the Cover with Kindness blanket drive organized by their boss Greg Litwin, a local notary public. Their downtown office is overflowing with blankets, sweaters, coats and other cold-weather gear that will be handed out Monday from 12-2 p.m. at St. Saviour’s Parish next door to the Soupateria on Orchard Avenue. Anyone in need of such items is welcome to take their pick on that day. - Joe Fries/Western News
