Victoria’s Curvalicious Boutique reignites coat drive

Plus-size women at transition houses the target of second annual drive

For a second year, the Curvy Coat Drive is collecting warm clothing for people staying at the Cridge Centre for the Family.

The drive, spearheaded by Sarah Frejd of Curvalicious Boutique, aims to bring in gently used coats for plus-size (14-up) women. Last year’s event collected coats for the Victoria Women’s Transition House.

Coats can be dropped off until Jan. 31 at the store, located at #2-774 Bay St. For more details, call 250-590-2799.
