Tri-Cities Holiday Gift Drive

Let’s spread the holiday kindness to those in need. Here2Help App has teamed up with Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control Coquitlam for a Gift Drive for youth and families who are in need and have been negatively impacted by the current pandemic in the Tri-Cities area. Help us spread the holiday warmth in these hard times. (We have a separate Stocking Drive for the homeless/in need here)

Are you able to donate? We are looking for the following items to be dropped off on Dec 19 and 20th:

  • Board games
  • Video games
  • Art Supplies
    • Pencils
    • Pencil crayons
    • Paints
    • Sketch books
    • Journals
  • Books
  • Gift cards for clothing
  • Clothing 
  • Gift cards for groceries (for the family)
  • Sports items
    • Balls
    • Frisbees
    • Hockey stick
  • Lawn games
  • Toys
  • Stuffed Animals
  • Action figures
  • Other good gift items!

With giving gifts and donating to those in need, remember used items are still valuable! Don’t think that you need to purchase something new in order to spread the love this holiday season. Things like used board games in good condition, old video game consoles and video games, books you have held onto you think someone would get joy out of and so much more can be of much value to families in tough situations.

Wildlife Prepare for Colder Nights!

The temperature is starting to drop. As the Fall season brings cool nights and falling leaves, urban wildlife in your neighbourhood will be looking to get out of the cold.

This is the time of year when adult populations of raccoons, squirrels and mice reach their peak and all of the babies born this past spring begin to leave their mother’s care and strike out on their own. These furry troublemakers will prepare for winter by finding their way into homes and attics to escape the cold.

This is why it is important to protect your home from wildlife or deal with any concerns you have before winter when the snow falls, the ground freezes and animals sleep longer.

Fortunately, you can trust Skedaddle to make it right. After a thorough assessment of your home is complete, we will have humanely removed the wildlife, cleared and repaired any damage, and protected your home from future unwanted animal visitors.

Click here to learn more about what the wildlife in your community will be up to this fall.

Don’t give the uninvited guests in your home the chance to settle in for winter. Connect with Skedaddle today.
