Support local non-profits this winter by helping to ‘Fill the Bin’!

The City’s outreach coordinators and bylaw division proudly present a winter apparel and food drive event, running from November 30 to December 15. To help distribute the items collected, the City has partnered with Hadih House, located at 2105 Pine Street, and Saint Vincent de Paul Society, located at 1220 2nd Avenue. Hadih House is a community drop-in centre for families and elders that offers a variety of programs from free clothing and laundry services to wellness workshops, meals, drop-in computer access and more. Saint Vincent de Paul provides hot meals, food hampers, clothing and home furnishings, and support accessing resources to those in need in Prince George and the surrounding area. Learn more about this initiative.
