Athletics department leading drive for clothing collection

Lancer fans can support local families in need with donations to a Holiday Clothing Drive by the athletics department through Nov. 27.

The charity effort will support kids’ clothing needed by local schools, and the Adopt-a-Family program of the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation.

Staff will accept contributions of children’s coats and other clothing items in good condition. Winter coats, hats, and mittens are highly desired, and cash is always gratefully accepted.

Drop off donations at any Lancer home game or at the customer service desk in the St. Denis Centre through Nov. 27. All donors will receive a ballot for a chance to win a Lancer Holiday Prize Pack. Find more details at
