A small group of Winnipeggers are hoping to collect more used clothing to help those in dire need.

On Saturday, the call for help was answered with a clothing donation drive called Walk With Dignity,

People were asked to drop of their clean used clothing at the United Way parking lot at 580 Main St.

Shelley Cook, one of the coordinators, said most of the people who donated clothing heard about the event through social  media.

"It's been really cool," Cook said. "There's been people driving up dropping off clothes. Some people are from Twitter and social media that I've never met in real life before so it's been a real tweet up. It's been a really neat experience." 

Residents dropped off everything from dresses, shorts, pants, and shirts for both men and women.

Oliver Valencia said he heard about the donation drive on Twitter and decided to drop off clothing to help support the people he knows are in need.

"I used to live a couple of blocks away from here I know how difficult it is to live out here," Valencia said. "I thought it would be a good thing to drop some stuff off."

Organizers said 55 bags of clothing were collected. All the donations collected will be sent to Main Street Project.
