If you are digging out your winter coats and outerwear to deal with the cold snap, someone else wants them too: the Silverton Vol. Fire Company.
The volunteers at the are collecting winter clothes and outerwear now through Jan. 7.
It's an annual used toy and clothing drive, said Lt. Mike Cocco, but this is the first year it's being held.
Any Thursday night from 6:30 p.m. till 10 p.m., you can drop off clothing as well as toys, new or used. The firehouse on Kettle Creek will be open at that time, but if you need to contact the organizers, call President John Addalia at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at the fire house 732-255-1122.
This is "to help families that can’t afford coats, jackets etc.," said Cocco. "This is a easy way to get rid of your old clothing around the house."
