Jacket Racket

The Community Resource Centre partners with local schools, organizations, and businesses each year to collect warm winter wear for local individuals and families as winter approaches.

How it works

  • Collection bins are placed in a variety of locations in Chestermere, Langdon, Indus, and Area from September 10 to October 12
  • Volunteers pick up collection bins mid-October for sorting.
  • Staff and volunteers set-up a store front toward the end of October in Chestermere. This is open to the public to collect warm winter wear for everyone in their household.
  • Donations are then transported to Langdon for distribution, in partnership with Langdon Community Church.

Please call the Community Resource Worker to learn how you can participate or access the program at (403) 207-7081.

Distribution of gently used/new warm winter wear (coats, snowsuits, hats, mitts, scarves, etc.) for children and adults will be available for pick-up at the Chestermere Food Bank (#105, 100 Rainbow Road, Chestermere) on the 2nd level, during the following times:

Mon, Oct. 22: 10am-2pm
Tue, Oct. 23: 10am-2pm
