BEMIDJI — The United Way of Bemidji Area’s annual Coats for the Community drive is underway.

Community members can help by donating new or clean, gently used men’s, women’s, infant’s and children’s coats and snowsuits. Winter accessories including boots, scarves, gloves and hats are also welcome.

Organizers ask that pairs of gloves or boots are attached together prior to donating.

Dress Club Cleaners and Lueken’s Village Foods North and South locations will be accepting donations through Tuesday, Sept. 27.

The coat drive is one of United Way’s community impact initiatives aimed to help meet the basic needs of those who may otherwise have to go without, while also helping families become more financially stable, a release said.
