Recology San Mateo County, in partnership with the City, is launching its annual "Coats for Kids" program to collect new and gently used coats to donate to those in need of a warm coat during the cold weather season. Both curbside pickup and drop-off locations are available.
Starting this Monday, October 13th, through Friday, October 17th, drivers from Recology will offer curbside collection
from residential homes on their regular collection day. Residents can participate by placing coats in a clear plastic bag marked “Coats for Kids” and placing the bag next to or on top of their blue recycling cart.
In addition, drop-off collection
containers labeled “Coats for Kids” will be placed at the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center and the Arrillaga Gymnastics Center from Monday, October 13th through Friday, October 24th.
At the end of the drive, Recology will deliver all of the donated coats to local non-profit agencies for distribution to those in need. Last year, Recology collected approximately 1,000 gently used coats that were donated to families in need through St. Anthony’s and Samaritan House.
