The Darien Police Association Is Hosting A Coat Drive
DARIEN-- The need has never been greater and it’s never been easier to make a difference in your community. Here is your opportunity to make sure that nobody goes without such a basic necessity as a coat this winter.
The Darien Police Association is collecting clean, gently used coats and jackets to be given to the Darien Chapter of Person-To-Person. Coats of all shapes and sizes are welcome although children’s coats are in high demand this season. This program is an easy way for you and your family to pass along coats and jackets that you no longer need.
The Darien Police Association has made donating a coat simple. Just bring your used coats and jackets to the Darien Police Headquarters Lobby located at 25 Hecker Ave. Darien, from November 8th to November 13th. A drop box will be located in the lobby which is open 24 hrs a day. All coats donated will be given to Person-to-Person for distribution to local people in need. All donations will help Person-To-Person meet the growing need for these items for the upcoming winter season. We hope that you'll take the time to donate items that you and your family won't be wearing again.
