A bed bug problem has left Inn From the Cold in urgent need of clothing.

Executive director Linda McLean says the agency is working with pest control to deal with the bugs, but says all of its clients have needed new clothes especially basics such as underwear, socks and pajamas.

"So we're in desperate need now of building those stocks back up so that anyone new arriving to us over the weekend or in the week to come will not be without those critical items," McLean says, adding everyone has completely depleted their stock.

McLean says people can drop off donations in person at the Inn from the Cold building on 11th Avenue S.E.
