Belmar asking for coat donations

Coats for Colorado, an annual winter coat drive, will host a collection event in Belmar 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sat., Nov. 9.

The drop off location is at the corner of Virginia St. and Teller St. (near 464 S. Teller St.).

Coats can be donated before Nov. 9 and will be delivered on that day.

The coat collection event will accept gently used and new coats in an effort to help ensure that those in need stay warm this winter season. Lakewood area residents and Belmar employees are encouraged to donate a coat on Nov. 9 to show the city’s support for the cause.

In addition, guests donating coats at the Belmar event will receive a skating pass for The Rink at Belmar (which opens on Nov. 14) and coat donors will be entered to win the Belmar Winter Coat Makeover.
