Carbon County Association of Realtors is conducting a winter coat drive. New and gently-used coats, will be accepted now through Nov. 20 at any real estate office in Carbon County or at Panther Valley Elementary School in Nesquehoning during normal business and school hours.

Those who cannot make those hours should call for an appointment.

Coats for all age groups and all sizes are needed, as well as winter boots, hats, gloves and scarves.

"Children's coats seem to be the most needed each year and the least donated," said Kimberly Rabenold, organizer.

Distribution will be held from 4-8 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 21, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday, Nov. 22 at Panther Valley Elementary School, as long as the coats last. Everyone in Carbon County is welcome to come and choose a coat.

Anyone with questions should call the CCAR office at 610-377-8121 or Kimberly Rabenold at 610-417-8152.
