Turn down the heat - Donate a sweater

Turn Down the Heat 2015 Campaign

The Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association will once again participate in the provincial wide Turn Down the Heat campaign from February 1st-7th, 2015. Participating businesses in over 20 Business Improvement Areas (BIAs) will turn down the heat at work and at home and wear sweaters to help promote energy conservation.

Downtown Nanaimo BIA members will be encouraging people to bring in their gently used sweaters and other suitable clothing items to be donated. The two societies in Nanaimo that these donations will go to this year are Nanaimo Women’s Centre and the Men’s Resource Centre.

The DNBIA is proudly working with other BIA’s in the province and FortisBC to raise awareness and to surpass last year’s donations of over 5000 sweaters. Our goal this year is to collect a minimum of 20 plus sweaters and other items, such as hats, gloves and coats, per donation box.
