Lift-Up of Routt County will be having its annual winter coat drive from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1 at the vacant lot across the street from Natural Grocers (at Third Street and Lincoln Avenue) and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2 at Ace at the Curve. We have a particular need for children’s winter coats this year.
Colorado Group Realty is donating the use of their truck to collect coats, and Ski Town Cleaners is generously cleaning all donated coats for free. Coats will be distributed to those in need from Nov. 7 to 26.
In 2012, Lift-Up distributed 242 coats, assisting a total of 129 households.
