Bask Winter Clothing Drive
Bask, a locally owned cannabis dispensary in Fairhaven, has announced plans for its annual Winter Clothing Drive. Donations will be accepted at Bask’s cannabis dispensary Nov. 1 through Nov. 20 at 2 Pequod Road in Fairhaven.
Bask has been committed to supporting the SouthCoast community since opening six years ago. This year’s donations will go directly to PAACA’s “Winter Gathering Center (“WGC”)” located at 360 Coggeshall Street in New Bedford. The WGC is not a shelter, but it does offer anyone a safe refuge from the cold.
Bask will be collecting winter coats, warm clothing, blankets, grocery store gift cards, personal hygiene products, and other items at the dispensary in Fairhaven. Donations can be dropped off at either the adult use (21+) or the Medical entrance during normal business hours. The medical entrance is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and the adult-use entrance is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
