On the 21st of November, 2012, the Chatham-Kent Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) requested the assistance of the public for hats, mittens and scarves for the homeless. The donated items were being collected on behalf of the Chatham-Kent Salvation Army Housing Support program that is currently in desperate need.

The OPP is pleased to report that they have received a further donation from Adult Language and Learning in Chatham-Kent, Ontario. The mission of Adult Language and Learning is to promote and foster personal growth and adjustment for all, including immigrants, in Chatham-Kent through further education, training, and opportunities that support independence and employment. New Canadians of the program decorated a Christmas tree with hats and mittens; the items will be given to the homeless.

In recent years, the Chatham-Kent OPP has collected over 250,000 lbs. of food, as part of the OPP Homeless Care Package Program.

Further donations such as cash, personal hygiene items and non-perishable food can be taken directly to the Chatham-Kent Salvation Army Housing Support Program at 42 Harvey St. in Chatham, Ontario between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday to Friday.
