Clothing Drive For Kasechewan Evacuees

A clothing drive is being held for the almost 600 Kashechewan First Nation evacuees.

The evacuees could be staying in Thunder Bay for much longer than originally thought.

They've already been here for three weeks and officials aren't sure when they'll be able to head back to their community because of flooding in the James Bay.

The Nishinawbe Aski Nation is working with a number of agencies to collect clothing and toiletries.

They'll also accept books, toys, and pens, pencils and paper.
