Have a coat you don't need? Someone out there can probably use it.
What got me thinking about this was a recent email about the annual coat drive sponsored by the Pupil Personnel Workers, the PTA Council of Howard County and other community organizations.
Maybe you have some winter coats, gloves or hats that are taking up space in your closet and are in need of a new home. The coat drive is currently under way and runs through Oct. 23.
Towanda Brown, the Reservoir High School PTA delegate, told me that you can drop off your coat donations at Reservoir High School any time the school is open. She asks that the articles be in good condition, clean, available for immediate use, sorted and bagged by gender and age group.
If you can't get to the school, you can also drop off the items at the Applications and Research Lab at 10920 Clarksville Pike, Ellicott City, on Thursday, Oct. 24, between 2 and 7 p.m. If you have any questions, you can give Towanda a call at 240- 274-5933.
You can also drop off your donations at Fulton Elementary School. For more information concerning the program at Fulton, contact Lisa Schlossnagle, Fulton Elementary School PTA Delegate via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
