The weather forecast Tuesday and Wednesday have certainly proved the need to stay warm in Regina and area.
Thanks to Angels 4 Warmth — who held their annual Scarves in the Park event Tuesday afternoon — it’s a little bit easier for those less fortunate.
President Donna Curran says with this week’s weather, it’s certainly a timely thing to do.
“Every year, we donate almost 50,000-60,000 items of warmth, and of course December, January and February are our busiest times,” Curran said. “(Tuesday) is definitely the onslaught of colder things to come, so I think it was very timely for us to choose (Tuesday).”
Curran says there’s a great amount of support from their volunteer base.
“So far, I think our count is about 40,000 plus, maybe a bit more,” Curran said. “For the Scarves in the Park, we have almost 200 scarves out for people, so it’s pretty incredible what our volunteers do.”
