Coats for Kids collection begins

 

Recology San Mateo County is launching its annual Coats for Kids program to collect new and slightly used coats for those in need.

From Monday, Nov. 5, through Friday, Nov. 9, drivers will collect coats curbside on collection days in Atherton and Menlo Park.

Coats should be placed in a clear plastic bag marked "Coats for Kids," and placed on top of the blue recycle cart.

Additionally, the town of Atherton will place collection containers, labeled "Coats for Kids," in the Town Hall lobby for residents to drop off coats.

Donated coats will be delivered to nonprofit agencies for distribution.

Last year, Recology collected 750 coats for families in need.

Um, we have white, brown and black bags. I've never seen a clear bag that big.
