Es­trie-aide faces short­ages of win­ter boots, cloth­ing

Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL NEWS - Record Staff

Es­trie Aide is ap­peal­ing to the pub­lic for dona­tions of win­ter boots for men, women, and chil­dren as the char­ity or­ga­ni­za­tion is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a crit­i­cal short­age of these items.

The sud­den ar­rival of win­ter took the or­ga­ni­za­tion by sur­prise and it was not ready when the re­quest ar­rived so they brought out every­thing they had on the shelves, but are not go­ing to be able to meet the de­mand for an ex­tended pe­riod of time,

In ad­di­tion to boots, the or­ga­ni­za­tion says there is a strong need for chil­dren's snow­suits, as there is for coats, and toques or mit­tens all win­ter long.
