​​The Orillia Learning Centre is teaming up with the Simcoe Alternative SS (Orillia Campus) and the Champlain Seniors Service Club, in partnership with Fabricare Cleaning Center (Orillia), to kick off their 8th Annual Winter Coat Drive. Donations of gently used winter coats can be dropped off from Oct. 16 to Nov. 30 during regular business hours at the following locations:   

   • Learning Centre, Orillia Campus - 575 West St. S., Unit 15, Orillia
   • Fabricare Cleaning Center - 36 Front St. S., Orillia
   • Wihlidal Family Chiropractic - 349 West St. N., Orillia

All coats will be cleaned prior to distribution. Coats are needed in all sizes (infant, child, teen and adult), but especially for small children and men’s large. Please note that fur or leather coats cannot be accepted because of specialized cleaning requirements.  

All donated winter coats will be distributed at no charge to Learning Centre students, Simcoe Alternative SS students and to Orillia and area residents Dec. 1 – 22, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Orillia Learning Centre. Remaining coats will be donated to community resource affiliates.
