Let’s Share the Warmth
A Call for Coats
Manhasset, NY – Winter will be here before we know it and unless we act quickly, some of us will be a lot colder than others. With that in mind, North Hempstead is again participating in the NCA Coats for Kids program that will put your gently-used outerwear on the kids and adults who really need them this winter. (Despite its title, this is a collection of coats for kids and adults.)
“Our community’s support of this project has made a significant difference,” said Ms. Gross, referring to the more than 500 coats donated by North Hempstead residents. “This program has become a hallmark of the generosity of our residents,” added Supervisor Kaiman.
As you browse through your closets for potential donations, we suggest you follow this formula: “If you haven’t worn it in a few years, you probably won’t - so please think about donating it!” said Ms. Gross.
COLLECTION SITES AND DROP-OFF TIMES:
Town Hall/ 220 Plandome Road (9:00 am to 4:45 pm)
