McLAUGHLIN TO HOST ANNUAL HOLIDAY
“COATS FOR KIDS” DRIVE
Assemblyman accepting gently-used kids’ coat donations at district office, collection will benefit Unity House of Troy
Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R,C-Melrose) today announced the launch of his 2012 “Coats for Kids” clothing drive in conjunction with the Unity House of Troy. As the colder winter months approach, McLaughlin is asking residents to take time to rid their closets of unused coats and donate them to children and adults in need.
“With the cold weather fast approaching, the donation of gently-used coats can provide the less fortunate members of our community with the warm outer garments they need to stay safe and healthy throughout the winter months” said McLaughlin. “Time and time again, our community’s generosity and charitable nature shines through when our neighbors need it most, and I hope to see that spirit of giving on display during this year’s “Coats for Kids” drive.”
Coats for both children and adults may be dropped off during the month of December at the following locations:
- Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin’s District Office: 1654 Columbia Turnpike, Castleton, NY 12033 (518-479-0542).
- Unity House of Troy: 33 Second Street, Troy, NY 12180 (518-274-2607).
Residents may also call Assemblyman McLaughlin’s District Office at 518-479-0542 to arrange an in-home pickup of coats.
