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. Special Thanks to Henry Lumber as well for their donation to the event. Tri-Rivers 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.
