This is the 30th year of the Longmont Rotary Winter Warmth Coat Drive. The event starts on October 17thh through November 20th .    There are twenty drop off sites located throughout Longmont.  New and gently-used coats, blankets, hats, scarves, gloves, mittens and boots are being collected.    

Members of the Rotary club will pick up the donations and take them to the OUR Center, 220 Collyer St. in Longmont, for sorting, and will start distributing items on Dec. 4thd to those in need of winter warmth clothing.   Longmont Rotary also provides a donation to purchase new coats and other clothing items for those qualifying individuals.  

The coat drive began in 1991 with six donation sites and has grown over time with the support of volunteers helping to collect, drop-off, sort and distribute the outer garments. Anyone who wants to participate in this 5-week collection drive can contact Longmont Rotary at www.longmontRotary.org
