CYF's Annual Coat Drive Begins
Posted by Juliet Lacy on 10/21/2013
The annual Winter Coat Drive, sponsored by the Community Youth Foundation (CYF), is underway.
This is the sixth year the CYF will collect coats for Eastside Community Ministry and the Salvation Army. Over the past few years, hundreds of coats, sweatshirts, hats, scarves and gloves have been distributed to area youth in need.
The Community Youth Foundation is requesting donations of gently used and new coats of all sizes to benefit the families with children. Monetary donations may also be made to help purchase hats, gloves and scarves. Monetary donations should be mailed to: CYF Coat Drive, 534 Putnam Ave, Zanesville, OH 43701.
Individuals can drop off items through November 15th at the following locations: the Muskingum County Community Foundation; three Century National Bank locations in Zanesville--Main Office, North at Brandywine Boulevard, and South at Clay Street; the John McIntire Public Library; the Tri-Valley Fitness Center; and area high schools.
CYF is a component fund of the Muskingum County Community Foundation. It exists to empower youth to make a difference in their community by providing financial and human resources to projects that benefit the youth of Muskingum County. The group engages in a variety of activities including community service projects, leadership development, grant making, fundraising and social activities.
