Charity BBQ and Clothing Donation Drive for OFCP

Lots of people will be bringing their old clothes to the Norwich Legion today in order to support the Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy.

NORWICH - The Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy will be holding a charity barbeque and clothing donation drive at the Norwich Legion today.

Anyone who drops off a clothing donation will be able to enjoy and free hot dog and drink between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

John Quigley, Director of Business and Community Development, says they will accept almost any type of fabric.

"If they are shop rags that are covered in oil or if there is chemicals on them we can't really accept them. But any quality of clothing, even bed linens and drapery is completely acceptable."

Quigley adds all of the donations will be put to good use.

"We've got over 2,000 members in Ontario that we directly support through the Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy and because we don't accept funding from the government, we accept clothing donations and household items. We sell those and then the proceeds go directly towards the funding."

Monetary donations will not be accepted, but they can be made through the federation's website.
