The HOLIDAYS are approaching…the weather will soon be cold, blowing winds will chill you to the bone…'tis the season to be jolly. But for some, it's not very jolly. They need some help. The caring folks at Kimmel Cleaners will volunteer their time, materials and machinery to clean good donated outerwear and Wyandot Motor Sales will furnish trailers for storage of the items that our good neighbors give so that others less fortunate can keep warm this winter. Coats will be picked up by Marion County Board of Developmental Disabilities in Marion and Amvets Post 777 in Upper Sandusky. A big thank you to those organizations for their support. MarionNaz in Marion and St. Peters in Upper Sandusky are donating their facilities to display the cleaned pre-owned coats on distribution day and staff from iHeartMedia Marion will be on hand to help with distribution.
How can you help this season? Drop off your good used or new coats at the following locations:
Center Street Community Health Center, First Federal Bank, Goodwill Industries, Kimmel Cleaners, Marion Community Credit Union, MarionNAZ, Penn Station in Marion Ohio. First Citizens Bank, First Federal Bank, Kimmel Cleaners, Fairhaven, Quest Federal Credit Union, St. Peter School, and Wyandot Motor Sales in Upper Sandusky. First Federal Bank in Harpster.
Distribution Day will be Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 8 a.m. at MarionNAZ in Downtown Marion and St. Peters School in Upper Sandusky. Coats will be distributed first come, first serve to anyone in need.
Special Thanks to Life Builders, Sherry Foust, and RHAM-partners of the Marion County Board of Developmental Disabilities and Amvets Post 777 in Upper Sandusky for helping with coat collection this year.
