“Coats for Kids” Giving Program, Sponsored by Recology

Good afternoon –

Here is another wonderful giving program for the holidays – and with these really cold evenings and mornings, this one is particularly important. Please read below and consider donating a gently used or new coat to Recology’s Coats for Kids program. It’s a one-week program, starting Monday December 12, so please pull out your old coats (or pick up a new one) and consider donating.

And…don’t forget the Toy and Book Drive wrapping party, a fun, festive event where volunteers take part in preparing the donated gifts for the kids, as part of the PAL/Fire/Police Toy and Book Drive. Volunteers are needed to assist with everything, from gift wrapping to helping with food and drinks. This year’s wrapping party is Monday, December 12th from 5 – 8pm at Red Morton Community Center, 1120 Roosevelt Avenue.

Recology San Mateo County is pleased to offer our Coats for Kids program, which will provide gently used and new coats for families in need.

This year’s program will take place during the week of Monday, December 12th through Friday, December 16th.  The Coats for Kids collection program includes a curbside collection of children and adult coats as well as designated drop off locations.

Curbside collection will take place in Redwood City, in addition to these other participating communities: Belmont, Burlingame, Foster City, Menlo Park, San Carlos (please pass this information along to anyone you know in those cities!). Visit for more information.

Here’s how it works: On your regularly scheduled collection day, during the week of December 12th through the 16th, please place gently used or new coats in a clear plastic bag, labeled “Coats for Kids.”  Please then place the bag on top of or next to your blue Recycle Cart for collection.

You can also drop your donations into the Coats for Kids collection barrel at City Hall, 1017 Middlefield Road.
