Our Community

We love our community!


Coats for Kids is a community service project that provides warm coats and clothing for anyone in need! Sharon Marshall began the Coats for Kids program in 1997 and is committed to making it a success each year.

Most of us have some coats or winter clothing that we don't use anymore. Donating these items makes a huge difference for someone in need. We collect warm clothing all year, so please drop off your donation at Discover Country Realty, 347 Market Avenue, Grand Forks, BC or call us at +1 (250) 442-2124 if you would like us to pick your donation up.


The Grand Forks Christian Centre has worked with us and opened their church to distribute the clothing each year (2017 dates to be announced). In 2016, the Border Bruins teammates came out and helped with loading, unloading, and setting up the coats. We thank the dedicated volunteers that give their time to categorize and distribute the coats!

Most of all, we would like to thank the people of the Boundary Country and our Community for their generous donations year after year - their remarkable support makes the program possible. Thank you!

We had a blast in the Santa Claus Parade in downtown Grand Forks in 2016. Sharon's orange jeep was all decked out with Christmas lights as we tossed candies to the huge crowd that came out. The parade was filled with amazing floats that included the Grinch, the Wizard of Oz, live bands, and of course, Santa. Such an awesome community!
