Town of Clarkstown Sponsors Clarkstown Cares Coat Drive

New City – Clarkstown Supervisor George Hoehmann announced the “kick-off” of the Clarkstown Cares Coat Drive. The program runs now through December 20th.

The town is collecting coats for kids and adults with the help of four 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!”
