With unusually cold and snowy spring weather, the Salvation Army is asking Londoners to donate to those who are living on the streets.

The Salvation Army is asking people to donate whatever they can — Jackets, mittens, hats — to ensure the less fortunate can stay warm in frigid temperatures.

“We can always use those donations, so long as they are new and in good condition,” said Shannon Wise, Salvation Army spokesperson.

“In addition, our location at 281 Wellington St. still has beds available to those in need,” she said.

A special “Paint Nite” will also be held Tuesday evening at the Boston Pizza on Wonderland Rd. in partnership with Global News Radio 980 CFPL’s sister station Fresh Radio.
