The Children’s Collective is collecting coats and jackets for its annual drive, starting November 5. “The calls from the shelters are coming in,” said Louise Sullivan, co-founder and Rye resident. “The need is huge and the shelters are nervous we won’t be giving them enough warm coats this fall.”
Coats can be dropped off at participating schools and Dollar Cleaner, 142 Midland Avenue in Port Chester. Sorting will take place November 12-14. “Back by popular demand we will be sorting the evening of the 13th with cocktails,” said Sullivan.
Point people are needed at the schools. “The more schools and point people, the greater number of children who will receive a warm coat,” Sullivan added.
