Coats for the Community

United Way of Sullivan County is pleased to be collecting warm clothing again this year for area residents.  Beginning Sept 1st there will be drop off locations throughout Newport, Claremont and Sunapee. 

The drop off locations include:  Claremont Savings Bank, Broad St and Washington St locations, Lake Sunapee Bank and Sugar River Bank, Newport and Sunapee locations, Valley Regional Hospital, Sullivan County Homecare, and Sturm Ruger.  Hubert’s Department Store will be participating by donating new clothing again this year.    Steve Smith, WCNL will be doing a live broadcast at each location of Free Coat Friday.

Those wishing to donate can also call the SCUW office at 543-0121 and arrange drop off at our office on 169 Main St in Claremont.  Any gently used warm articles of clothing are accepted and appreciated.  We find the greatest need is for children’s clothing from newborn through grade school age and larger adult coats and sweaters.

This is a community service that SCUW has been pleased to offer those in need of coats, boots, hats, mittens and blankets during the cold winter months.  Free Coat Friday will be held in Claremont in the parking lot of Claremont Savings Bank on Broad St, October 13th and in Newport on the Town Common on October 20th from 8:00-3:00.   Donations will also be accepted at Free Coat Fridays.

On behalf of United Way of Sullivan County I want to extend my thanks all of those who make this community endeavor possible with their outpouring of support and caring, Dawn Ranney, Executive Director.
