UXBRIDGE: Operation Warm Hearts is once again looking to the public for donations to help keep the community warm.
The annual initiative is asking residents for donations of winter coats, but are also accepting other winter wear such as hats, boots and gloves.
The coats which are donated will be put up for sale, at the initiative’s annual event, in Uxbridge Public School, which is taking place on Saturday, Nov. 5th, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. All of the proceeds will be donated to the Loaves and Fishes Food Bank, in Uxbridge.
All new or gently used winter items can be donated, by bringing them to either; the Uxbridge Seniors Centre, at 75 Marietta St.; or at the Wash Worx Laundromat, located at 11 Main St., North.
For a coat pickup, call Coordinator Maggie McCreath, at 647-380-1674.
Last year, 580 coats were donated, and the initiative raised over $600 for the local food bank.
