The Salvation Army in Ottawa County has partnered with the Cousino Restoration and the Ottawa County community to provide new and gently used warm winter coats for local children and families in need.
The Salvation Army’s “Coats for Families” program will begin this week and run through January 2020.
The program is based on donations from the general public of new and gently used coats only that will be cleaned by Cousino Resoration. Last year, The Salvation Army collected and distributed over 1,018 coats to local families in Ottawa County.
This is the 25th year this program has been providing coats to the local residents. The primary collection area for new coats is The Salvation Army office, 1834 E. Perry St., Port Clinton.
If anyone would like to donate new coats, please drop them off at the collection site or call The Salvation Army at 419-732-2769 and speak with Director Maureen Saponari.
