Waterloo Region, Ontario – The Waterloo Regional Police Service is encouraging the community to take part in its second annual Winter Wear Campaign.

The campaign encourages residents of Waterloo Region to purchase new winter coats, snow pants, hats, mittens, scarves, or gift cards to be donated to children and families in need to ensure they stay warm this winter.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for many,” said Bryan Larkin, Chief of Police. “As the effects of the pandemic continue, so do the needs of many families and children in Waterloo Region. We want to do our part to ensure that we share the warmth this winter.”

The Winter Wear Campaign will run until November 30, 2021. All donations will go to community organizations in need throughout Waterloo Region.

Donations can be dropped off at Police Headquarters, located at 200 Maple Grove Road in Cambridge, or at any police division:

  • North Division, 45 Columbia Street East, Waterloo
  • Central Division, 134 Frederick Street, Kitchener
  • South Division, 176 Hespeler Road, Cambridge
