Winter is coming and the Nelson-Creston Greens are organizing a clothing drive to collect new and gently used clothing items to donate to the Community Living houses around our various communities. The clothing drive will run until Friday November 12th, at which point all the items will be gathered and donated.
In greatest need:
- Winter coats
- Small & medium men's pants
- Tents & sleeping bags
For those in Nelson:
1123 Front Street (Zach's house) will serve as the collection point throughout the course of the drive. Feel free to drop-off items for donation at this address, or contact Zach at 250-216-5940 to arrange a time for pick-up.
The Nelson-Creston Greens will be operating a donation drop-off at Millenium Park on Thursday November 11th from 11-3 pm. Please bring any new or gently used items you wish to donate at this time. If you are unable to make this time slot work, please reach out to Zach at 250-216-5940 to arrange alternative means.

Thank you all for your support in this, together let's demonstrate what the Nelson-Creston Greens can do for our community!
Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
