First Snow

It’s that time of year again – when the temperature consistently dips below freezing overnight and the days are getting shorter. And with the first snow of the season on Thanksgiving Day, there is the familiar need to warm the heads, hands, and hearts of those less fortunate in Lethbridge.

Winter essentials

We always accept clothing items for distribution out of our People in Need Bank (PIN Bank).

This time of year we are especially seeking:

  • new or gently used coats and jackets,
  • new or gently used hoodies,
  • new or gently used boots,
  • dark gloves (gloves are preferred over mitts),
  • dark or plain toques & scarves
    • (the brightly coloured ones aren’t as popular with our clients),
  • new or gently used jeans,
  • and new white socks.


Easy to Donate

We gratefully accept donations at the Streets Alive Mission office, located at 323 4 St S, Lethbridge. The office is open Monday-Friday 9:30am to Noon, and 1pm to 4:30pm.

Every Donation Helps

Ken Kissick, co-founder of Streets Alive Mission, says,

When the first cold weather arrives most of us reach into a closet and bring out our warm coat. If you don’t have a closet, like many of our clients here at the Mission, chances are you don’t have a warm coat either.


Cold is cold no matter who you are, and the fact is we all have something warm in our closet we could share with someone in need.

Every donation makes a difference!

For more information, please feel free to call our office at 403-320-1159.

Thank You!

We can’t say it enough, and we really do mean it – THANK YOU!
