Bend Fire and Rescue is having their annual coat drive for new or used winter wear.
Donations are accepted and can be dropped off between November 6 and December 2.
They are also offering an option for contact-less drop off.
New or used coats, scarves and other winter-related clothing are requested. Children’s coats are needed the most.
“Children from low-income families often wear their coats inside their residences and children are particularly susceptible to the cold because their small bodies must work harder to maintain a safe core temperature,” Bend Fire and Rescue said.
You can visit any Bend fire station to donate your items.
