Another successful touque and mitt drive from the Foothills Fetal Alcohol Society during the High River Santa Claus Parade Friday, December 1.

The Society's Travis Sandor says they brought in enough to fill a couple of really big recycling bins.

We did about what we did last year, and we're excited about that. And hopefully we'll get more next year."

Sandor says the majority of the donated goods will go to the Homeless Shelter in Calgary, while others will stay here in the Foothills, going to those who need them.
