Recology San Mateo County Collecting Used Coats for Kids

Recology San Mateo County is collecting new and gently used coats to donate to those  in need of a warm coat during the cold weather season. From Monday,  November 5th through Friday, November 9th, bring your donation to City Hall 1017 Middlefield Road, or to Red Morton Community Center, 1120 Roosevelt Avenue, and drop it in the bin marked “Coats for Kids.”

Also, during this week Recology drivers will  collect coats curbside from Redwood City residential homes on your normal collection day. Place coats in a clear plastic bag marked “Coats for Kids” and place the bag next to or on the top  of your blue Recycle Cart.

All donated coats will be given to  local non-profit agencies for distribution to those in need.  Last year, Recology collected  approximately 750 gently used coats that were donated to families in  need through St. Anthony’s and Samaritan House.
