The 2nd Annual Keeping our Community Warm Coat Drive is held at the Cherry Capital Subaru auto dealership located on Garfield Avenue.

Ferris State University (FSU)/University Center students challenge you to help them “Fill An-Escalade” with cold weather gear. Donations accepted include new and gently used coats, hats, mittens, socks, thermal underwear, hand-warmers and boots for adults, to help provide much needed protection against the unforgiving winters we all experience here in Northern Michigan.

Visit local area businesses to drop off your donated items or stop by Cherry Capital Subaru on Sat., Nov. 12 and enter for a chance to win prizes donated by area businesses. Drop-off sites: Tom’s Food Markets on 14th St., East Bay, Acme and Interlochen; Glen’s Food Mkt. on 8th St., NMC and University Center. Coat drive runs Nov. 1-30.

Your donations benefit the Street Outreach programs through Goodwill Industries and Third Level Crisis Center.
