Do you have an extra coat in your closet? If so, you may be able to help your neighbor out.
The town of Clarkstown has launched the 25th annual Coats for Kids program.
The program runs through Dec. 5 to provide coats for those Rockland residents who might not otherwise be able to buy a warm winter coat.
“If you have an extra coat in your closet, join me in making this holiday season a little brighter and a great deal warmer for our neighbors,” Supervisor Alex Gromack said. “Donors may bring their coats in gently worn condition to one of the participating dry cleaners. They will clean the coats free of charge, and then forward them to one of the distribution agencies located throughout the County.”
The program is supported by The Byne Group who designed the posters free of charge; New Born Printing who printed the posters for free; the Florian Association of Rockland County, a group of retired FDNY members living in Rockland County; and 100.7 WHUD Radio, Patch.com and the Clarkstown High School South students who have designed flyers to distribute around the school and the community.
