Community Lending Shelf - Coats For Everyone

The Coats For Everyone program is under a new roof this winter season. The Community Lending Shelf has taken on the program to go along with their clothing donation initiative.

With the cold weather upon us, a local program will be keeping Olds residents warm this winter.
 
Director of the Community Lending Shelf Lucinda Watkins says this year they are also taking on the Coats For Everyone program.
 
 
Watkins says coats and warm clothing for children and adults can be donated.

She notes they will be distributing not just warm clothing for children but adult coats as well. 
 
According to Watkins, there are lots of donations coming in for kids and women's clothing, but there is a need for men's winter coats.
 
The Community Lending Shelf has a new location at the Olds United Church.
 
You can drop off items at their 24-hour, 7 days a week drop off bin behind the Church.
