As winter approaches the Hampton Roads region, there are many families in need of coats. Girl Scouts are helping WAVY-TV 10 and FOX43 with a community service called Coats for Families. You can donate gently used or new coats and drop them off at A Place for Girls or various locations listed here. Used coats will be cleaned and ready for distribution for those in need – thanks to Albano Cleaners and Boulevard Cleaners. The campaign will run through December 9 with one major distribution of coats on December 14 at select locations from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. – one coat per person. Parents should bring their children for proper sizing. See public service announcement here.
