Connected Core, a City-supported project that’s aiming to address social issues in the downtown core, is launching a winter boot drive.
The program is coordinating a drive for gently used boots, which will be provided to community partners serving those in need. The collected boots will be distributed by Salvation Army, David Busby Centre, the Gilbert Centre and Redwood Park Communities.
From Nov. 25 to Dec. 9, members of the community are encouraged to donate gently used winter boots at the dropoff boxes in any of two locations: RVH RAAM clinic (70 Wellington St., Barrie lower level); Barrie Police Services Bell Farm Rd office (60 Bell Farm Rd., Barrie; Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.)
The goal of the Connected Core pilot program is to create awareness of services currently available in the downtown core, by bringing together community partners and other key stakeholders, and to work together to fill gaps identified in the community. The aim of the program is to connect marginalized individuals to the right services at the right time by providing access to a comprehensive archive of all our community partners and downtown stakeholders.
