The Ocean City Board of Realtors is holding its fall community service project, a drive to collect coats, sweaters, scarves, hats and other cold weather items.
Donations will be collected now through Nov. 20 and will be used to give the gift of warmth for winter to those in need in Ocean City.
The Warmth for the Winter Drive will collect gently used or new items.
The most needed clothing are coats for men, hats, scarves, gloves and socks. Donations of hats, gloves, coats and scarves for children are also needed, as well as blankets, sheets and comforters.
“Gently used or new donations will provide warmth for the winter to families in need. It’s time to switch over your wardrobe from summer to winter. We encourage our fellow Realtors, friends and neighbors to donate items,” said Gloria Votta, chairwoman of the Community Services Committee for the Ocean City Board of Realtors.
Residents are encouraged to clean out their closets at home and help others in the process.
The Ocean City Ecumenical Clothes Closet would appreciate your donations.
Donations may be dropped off at the office of the Ocean City Board of Realtors, 405 22nd Street. Office hours are Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
Donations are to be placed inside a plastic bag, and plastic bags will be provided as needed.
