For several years, Suffolk County Legislator Rob Trotta (R-Fort Salonga) has been working with SMM Advertising in Smithtown to conduct a winter coat drive to benefit the residents of Suffolk County who are in need of warm winter clothing. They are collecting gently used or new coats, jackets, hats, gloves, mittens, scarves and new socks for infants, children, teens and adult men and women.
“As people prepare for the winter and clean out their closets or plan to give a new coat as a gift, it is important for all of us to help our fellow neighbors who need warm coats by contributing to this worthwhile drive,” said Trotta.
Donations of coats and other outerwear may be dropped off at Trotta’s district office, located at 59 Landing Ave., Suite 1, in Smithtown, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The coat drive ends Jan. 6.
For directions, questions or if you know of an organization with an urgent need, please call Trotta’s office at 631-854-3900.
