SUNBURY (WBRE/WYOU-TV) The staff at the YMCA is thinking ahead, getting ready for the upcoming chilly months.
The Greater Susquehanna Valley YMCA is hosting the 14th annual coat drive at the Sunbury YMCA
Organizers are hoping to help out local families by collecting coats, hats, gloves and scarves.
The items will then be donated to families in need three days before Thanksgiving.
Organizers say it’s a great feeling to be able to give back.
“Throughout the whole year we get so much support from the community through all of our events and programs and things like that it’s just a great way for us to give back to the community who always gives so much for us.” said Molly Aungst, Communications Director.
Typically, more than one thousand coats are donated during drive.
