It's Time To "Share The Warmth"

Posted:

The Lubbock Apartment Association kicked-off their annual "Share The Warmth" coat drive Saturday.  Volunteers have been taking your donations of coats, hats, scarves and more since 2005. 

Last year the group received national recognition for their efforts. Each year they collect thousands of items, and give them to those in need. This year, organizers hope to collect more than 4,000 warm items to giveaway.

"We couldn't do it without the help of over 140 local businesses and community sponsors though, including NewsChannel 11 and the dry cleaners that clean the coats for us and Century Property Management for providing a coat closet to store all these coats," John Leonard with the Lubbock Apartment Association said.  

Donations can be made at four locations inside the South Plains Mall. The first giveaway is scheduled for October 25th.
