The Salvation Army-Port Clinton Service Unit is extending its Winter Coats Program because of the increasing needs and the generosity of the community.
The program usually runs from Nov. 1-Jan. 31. This year, the program has been extended to run through February. This program is based on donations from the general public of gently used and new coats to be cleaned and redistributed cost free to local families in need of a winter coat. Executive Cleaners had provided cleaning for all donated coats.
This is the 16th year this program has been providing coats to the residents of Ottawa County.
Last year, The Salvation Army collected and distributed more than 900 coats to local families in Ottawa County. This year, more than 1,100 coats have been distributed.
If you are in need of a warm winter coat, stop by The Salvation Army in The Sutton Center or call Director Maureen Saponari at 419-732-2769.
