As winter approaches, Cornerstones in Reston asks the community to come forward and donate cold-weather gear for those in need.
The annual Winter Coat Closet Charity Drive, which started on Thursday (Nov. 14), collects new or lightly used jackets, hats, scarves and gloves for men, women and children.
People who want to donate or are in need of winter clothing can stop by the Hunter Mill District Supervisor’s Office (1801 Cameron Glen Drive) and ask for the community room on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5 to 7 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The location will be collecting jackets until Jan. 16, but those in need can come collect gear through March 14.
Kids’ coats, as well as men’s XXL sizes, are in high demand, according to the drive’s website.
Anyone wanting to volunteer their time can contact Morgan Grant, Community Resource Coordinator, at 571-323-3674.
