The bite of winter will soon arrive, and cold weather shelters could open as soon as next week.

Along with the potential opening is a call for donations of quilts, blankets and cough drops.

Needed are about 60 blankets, 20 quilts, and no limit to cough drops. The cough drops are a huge relief to people using the sites, service providers say.

Donations can be dropped off at Hyland House, at 6595 King George Blvd., or call Jonquil at 604-581-5172.

The shelters will open when the temperatures drop to freezing.
