Lacombe residents can declutter around their homes and help Diabetes Canada by participating in a local clothing donation drive-thru drop-off event on Sept. 17.
The event will run at No Frills from 9 a.m. to noon.
For those that cannot make it out to the community clothing donation drive-thru, they can donate used clothing at one of the charity’s donation bins.

Sean Shannon, president and CEO of National Diabetes Trust, said, “Through our clothing donation program encouraging people to donate their gently used clothing, Diabetes Canada is able to support diabetes research and give children with Type 1 diabetes the opportunity to attend summer camps designed with their needs in mind.
“Thanks to our generous donors and volunteers, we also divert 100 million pounds of clothing and small household items from community landfills annually.”
All net proceeds from the donations will go to the charitable work of Diabetes Canada and the support it provides to 11 million Canadians with diabetes and prediabetes.
