State Rep. Frank Farina, D 115-Lackawanna/Wayne, is collecting winter coats in his constituent service office to distribute to local shelters and nonprofit organizations.
“The temperatures are starting to fall, and keeping warm may be the difference between life and death,” Farina said. “If you have good, clean coats just taking up space in your closet, please share with the less fortunate.
“You can clean out closet space and take care of your neighbors at the same time.”
Farina’s office will begin collecting them on Monday, Oct. 28 through Wednesday, Nov. 27, 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.
