Ahead of what is set to be one of the toughest winters to date, St Mirren Football Club has launched a new initiative to collect warm clothing and jackets that we can then distribute throughout the local community.
We are asking that any fans attending home matches this week against St Johnstone on Wednesday 9th November and Rangers on Saturday 12th November bring along any warm items of clothing that they no longer require. We are hoping to collect as many winter jackets, jumpers, scarves, hats, gloves, boots and blankets as we can.
We’ve teamed up with Kibble and Scottish Leather Group to collect and distribute the clothing and ask that you hand in any donations at entrance points when arriving at the SMiSA stadium for the matches.
We’ll also be opening our doors to anyone not attending the matches this week. Items can also be dropped off at the SMiSA Stadium reception between 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday. Likewise, winter clothing can be donated from Wednesday 9th November to Wednesday 16th November at the Security Gate for Scottish Leather’s Group’s Paisley factory on Turner Drive, Paisley PA3 4EP. Weekday drop-off hours at Scottish Leather Group are between 8am and 6pm, with weekend hours between 10am and 2pm.
We’ve been overwhelmed with generosity from fans to date and hope that, if you are able, you can support this new initiative and help a Buddie out.
