The Muskingum County Community Youth Foundation (CYF) is conducting its 11th annual Winter Coat Drive to provide coats and other winter items to local children and families in need. CYF requests donations of new and gently used coats of all sizes to benefit families with children. Items can be dropped off until November 9th at the following locations:
Over the years, hundreds of coats, hats, scarves and gloves have been distributed to families served by the Salvation Army, Bethel Community Center, Lifewell, Eastside Community Ministry, Zanesville Civic League, and the Tri-Valley Area Clothing Bank.
CYF would like to thank Creative Packaging for donating boxes for the drive.
