The weather is turning colder, blowing winds will chill will be here very soon, AND 'tis the season to be jolly. But for some, it's not a happy time. They need some help. That's where our Coats for Christmas campaign can assist, but we need your help! Right now, we're collecting gently worn, warm winter coats for our community.
The caring folks at Kimmel Cleaners will volunteer their time, materials and machinery to clean, good, donated, outerwear. Wyandot Motor Sales is furnishing trailers for storage of the items that our good neighbors give, so anyone who need one, can keep warm this winter.
The donated coats will be picked and delivered up by Marion County Board of Developmental Disabilities and by Wyandot County Board of Developmental Disabilities. A big thank you to those organizations for their support. Goodwill Retail Store in Marion and St. Peters School in Upper Sandusky are donating their facilities to display the cleaned pre-owned coats on distribution day and volunteers from the Marion and Wyandot Board of D.D., United Way, Goodwill and iHeartMedia Marion will be on hand to help with distribution.
Special Thanks to Wyandot Motor Sales for the donated use of a trailer to store the coats for distribution.
