Annual Coat Drive at Lakeland Hills YMCA

Winter coat collection

MOUNTAIN LAKES — Doing some fall closet cleaning? Well, don’t throw your old coats away! Some less fortunate neighbors in our area could use them this winter.

The Lakeland Hills Family YMCA will be partnering with the Community Church of Mountain Lakes, Mountain Lakes High School Key Club, by collecting coats for the Market Street Mission’s and Homeless Solutions’ annual coat drives from Monday, October 1 through Monday, October 15.

Just bring your coat(s) to the Y lobby anytime from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and drop them off in the collection box, or you may drop off at the Community Church.

All styles and sizes welcome. Coats should be clean and in good condition. Coats will not be accepted before October 1 or after October 15.  Scarves and gloves will also be accepted. Want more information? Call Randy at the Lakeland Hills Y, (973) 334-2820 or email:
