Clarkstown Supervisor George Hoehmann this week announced the “kick-off” of the Clarkstown Cares Coat Drive. The program runs through December 22, 2017.
The town is collecting coats for kids and adults with the help of three local dry cleaners. The cleaners will clean the coats free of charge, and then forward them to three distribution agencies, Martin Luther King Center, People to People, and Advocates for Change.
“Many families are faced with tough times during the holidays. I am asking residents to look through their closets and donate any coats they may no longer need,” said Supervisor Hoehmann. “Helps us keep our neighbors warm this winter!”
This years’ list of participating dry-cleaners include:
Touch of Class
377 S. Main Street
53 Bardonia Road
Personal Touch Cleaners
301A North Main Street
If you or anyone you know is in need of a coat contact any of the following organizations:
Martin Luther King Center, 110 Bethune Boulevard: 425-8910
Advocate for Change, 845-461-0523
People-to-People of Rockland, 121 West Nyack Road: 623-4900
“As the hustle and bustle of the holiday season surrounds us, it is heartwarming to see the generosity displayed by many residents,” said Supervisor Hoehmann. “I am amazed by the kindness and willingness of the businesses and residents of Clarkstown to help our fellow residents.”
