HARRISBURG —State Rep. Frank Farina, D-Lackawanna/Wayne, is collecting winter coats in his constituent service office to distribute to local shelters and nonprofit organizations.
"Winter is in full swing, and keeping warm may be the difference between life and death," Farina said. "If you are fortunate enough to have coats you no longer need, please share with the less fortunate.
"Style is not important, just please make sure the coats are clean and in wearable condition."
Farina's office will be collecting them through Feb. 15, and he will then share them with local groups as needed.
Farina's office, 423 Main St., Eynon, is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.
