Collège Boréal delivers 200 winter kits to vulnerable residents in the Timmins area

The “Let’s Keep Warm This Winter” initiative helps provide people in precarious situations with free essential items to get through the winter.

In collaboration with the Diocese of Timmins and Newmont Porcupine, Collège Boréal’s Humanitarian Project team in Timmins is delivering 200 winter kits today to the region’s vulnerable. The first edition of the “Let’s Keep Warm This Winter” initiative aims to provide immediate, concrete support for basic needs. Each kit includes:

  • a sleeping bag
  • a toque
  • a pair of winter gloves
  • a neck warmer
  • a pair of earmuffs
  • a pair of winter socks
  • a package of hand warmers
  • a mylar blanket

To directly reach those who need them most, the Mushkegowuk Fire Keeper Patrol, a group of social workers specializing in mental health and addiction, will distribute 200 basic necessities kits, worth a total of $8,500, alongside Living Space, Timmins’ emergency homeless shelter.

At this time of year, when weather conditions can be particularly harsh, it’s important to support our community’s most vulnerable members. Collège Boréal is proud of this new partnership and we look forward to the positive impact these kits will have, so that no one is left out in our society.
