Win­ter coat drive cur­rently un­der­way

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - COMMUNITY -

Dutchess Out­reach is con­duct­ing its an­nual Su­san DeKeuke­laere Memo­rial Coat Drive, spon­sored by Guardian Self Stor­age.

Peo­ple are be­ing urged to do­nate adult and chil­dren’s win­ter coats and jack­ets, es­pe­cially plus sizes, that are clean and in good con­di­tion. There are eight dis­tri­bu­tion sites around Dutchess County that will give coats to those in need.

Last year, about 5,500 coats were col­lected and dis­trib­uted. Or­ga­niz­ers are hop­ing to in­crease that num­ber this year.

Coats can be dropped off at any Guardian Self Stor­age lo­ca­tion through­out Dutchess County. Other drop-off sites are Rhinebeck Bank Branches, Ray­mour and Flani­gan Clear­ance Cen­ter at 757 Vas­sar Road and all Red Cap Clean­ers lo­ca­tions.

Coats will be col­lected at these lo­ca­tions through Oct. 31.

For more in­for­ma­tion, call Dutchess Out­reach at (845) 454-3792.
