WHEN CBC TV reporter Reg Sherren came to Terrace late last year to do a profile on lottery winner Bob Erb, he accompanied Erb on stops he made to drop off cash donations at various social services agencies.
One of those stops was at the Ksan House Society, a prominent local agency which, among other services, operates a homeless shelter on Hall St. and a transition house elsewhere.
Some of that money went into purchasing winter coats for homeless shelter residents, a project assisted through a discount provided at Mark’s Work Wearhouse.
In all, 40 winter coats were purchased and taken to the shelter the week before Christmas.
“It’s important because it’s cold and wet and winter’s just beginning,” said one of the case managers, Elaine McGillivray.
One of the residents said he hadn’t received a Christmas gift in 40 years.
