Weather’s Turning. It’s Coat Drive Time in Greenwich.

Does the bar sag in your coat closet? Do you really wear all those coats?

As the weather turns, and we prepare to swap our summer wardrobes for the sweaters and jackets of fall, why not prune some of those jackets and coats you haven’t worn in a while?

Phil Brous of Needs Clearing House is helping organize a townwide coat drive next month. Organizers are looking for coats for men, women and children.

There will be drop-off boxes at all seven fire stations in town, as well as the Greenwich Police Headquarters on Bruce Place.

Residents may also drop off their donations at Mr. Brous’s business, P1 Motorcars, which has its showroom at #67 Church Street. Drop off hours are Monday through Saturday 10:00am til 5:00pm.

The coat drive is set for Friday Oct. 2nd, Saturday Oct. 3rd and Sunday Oct 4th.

The coats (and gloves, scarves and even blankets) will be given to Kids in Crisis, Neighbor-to-Neighbor and the Greenwich Housing Authority.

The drive is sponsored by Needs Clearing House, Greenwich Fire and Police Departments, Two Men & a Truck, Staples and Village Appliance.
