The Family Centre is collecting donations of kids clothing for their semi-annual Kids Giveaway. The event runs from March 23 to 24. The Family Centre will have a room set up with kids clothes arranged by size. The hours will be 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. both days. Donations are still being accepted, and can be dropped off at the Family Centre.

“The community is so awesome when I do the clothing giveaway,” said Shine.
