Winter Warm Wave 送暖有禮 再籌 3,196 磅

第二波的「寒衣送暖流送暖有禮日於12月18日完滿結束,破紀錄在四小時內籌得3,196磅的舊衣物,比第一次「送暖有禮日」的2,031磅還要高出57%,成績令人鼓舞。

加拿大救世軍自去年起因租金上升而結束列治文第三路的二手店後,令很多列市居民大感不便。加拿大中文電台每年都主辦「寒衣送暖流救世軍籌募衣物,是救世軍最大的支持機構,故特別定出兩個星期日為「送暖有禮日」,在電台外設攤位收集舊衣,同時更自資購買禮物送給每位捐衣的善長,出錢出力扶貧送暖。

作為暖流大使的 2011 Sunshine Boyz and GirlzLittle Sunshine,亦為善不甘後人,一整個下午都忙於整理衣物,計算重量,並送出 Shake Shake 暖袋給善長。

雖然今年的「送暖有禮日已結束,但「寒衣送暖流仍火熱繼續直至1月2日,歡迎聽眾將家中多餘的舊衣服、棉被、書本甚至CD、DVD捐到各區的寒衣收集站。

Winter Warm Wave 送暖有禮 再籌 3,196 磅 Winter Warm Wave 送暖有禮 再籌 3,196 磅

On December 18, Fairchild Radio once again set up the "Give the Gift of Warmth Collection Booth" to collect used clothing items for the Salvation Army.  In less than four hours, 3,196 pounds of clothes and blankets were collected, breaking all the previous records.

"Give the Gift of Warmth" is a side event of Fairchild Radio's annual charity campaign Winter Warm Wave.  Since the Salvation Army closed its only thrift store in Richmond last year due to high rent, many donors living in this neighborhood found it inconvenient to take their donations to another city.  Fairchild Radio, which is located at Aberdeen Centre of Richmond, stepped up the plate and offered its location and its manpower to accept clothing donations on two Sundays.

For the entire afternoon, the booth was packed with donors bringing in bags of clothes, blankets, books and other household items. The 2011 Sunshine Boyz and Girlz and the Little Sunshine worked almost non-stop in greeting donors, accepting and weighting donations and rewarding each donor with a souvenir - this year a pair of pocket warmers.

On average, each donor brought in about 15 pounds of clothes, but some people came with truckloads of clothes that required assistance from our Sunshine Boyz to move them to the booth. With all the generous donations from our kind listeners, the Nov 27 record of 2,031 pounds was broken midday. Then within two hours, the total weight reached an astonishing 3,196 pounds, making the day the biggest success ever.
