The 23rd Annual Warm Up Marshall County Coat Drive kicks off on Monday, October 25th.
Warm Up Marshall County was created when Steve Keyser from Oliver Ford Lincoln saw kids on their way to school without a warm coat. He approached the Oliver Family and asked to create a coat drive that would serve the needy families in Marshall County with winter coats. Over the years Warm Up Marshall County has grown from 100’s of used coats to each year having lots of new coats, hats and gloves too.
Warm Up Marshall County will be collecting coats for the needy until November 17th. All types, sizes and kinds of coats are needed, from infants, to children, teens, adults and seniors. Now’s the time to clean out that closet and donate those coats that you no longer use.
Coats should be in good shape, clean and ready to wear. They can be dropped off at Beacon Credit Union, at the Bellmart BP stations, 1st Source Bank, WTCA, the Pilot News, Dr. Joel Schumacher Family Medicine and at Oliver Ford Lincoln.
Warm Up Marshall County will distribute coats, hats and gloves on Saturday, November 20th from 10 a.m. till noon and on Sunday, November 21st from noon till 2 p.m. at the National Guard Armory at 1220 West Madison Street in Plymouth.
