The Shepherd’s Staff will open its annual coat drive Friday, marking 32 years for which the nonprofit has collected and distributed winter clothes to those in need in Westminster.

The Call for Coats program kicks off Friday, Sept. 27, and lasts through Nov. 15. The Shepherds Staff is looking for donations of outerwear — from coats to scarves to gloves and hats — and in all sizes and for all ages from infant to adult.
