Is your closet packed with old winter coats, hats and gloves. If you want to clear some of them out and make some space be sure to do something with them that will make a difference.

If you're looking for something to do with those old winter clothes you can donate them to those in need this winter.

It's cold out there and we tend to forget how expensive coats can be. As the Hudson Valley hits freezing cold temperatures we should make sure our neighbors are warm. If you know anyone who is in need of a winter coat be sure to go Cafeteria of the Family Partnership Center on 29 N. Hamilton Street in Poughkeepsie from 5-8pm. There will be free haircuts available as well.

They'll be collecting coats and also giving them to those in need. If you know someone who needs one be sure to let them know.
