Help keep people warm; donate coats

Washington County is collecting new or clean, gently used coats and jackets as part of the “One Warm Coat” community service project. Coats of all shapes and sizes are welcome.

One Warm Coat is dedicated to distributing reusable coats, free of charge, directly to local children and adults. The program is an easy way for you and your family to pass along coats and jackets you no longer need.

Washington County has made donating a coat simple. Just bring your coats and jackets to the donation bin at one of the following locations:

n Public Service Building Lobby, 155 N. First Ave., Hillsboro

n Washington County Sheriff’s Office, 215 S.W. Adams Ave., Hillsboro

n Sheriff’s Office East Precinct, 3700 S.W. Murray Blvd., Beaverton

n Land Use and Transportation Department, 1400 S.W. Walnut Street, Hillsboro

Coats will be collected from Oct. 21 to Nov. 29. Washington County Sheriff’s Office volunteers will collect them from the dropoff locations. All coats will be delivered to the Hillsboro Family Resource Center in Washington County, which will distribute them to the citizens who need them most.
