There’s still time to donate!

Do you have warm adult clothes that are gently used (and clean) and not worn anymore? This is your opportunity to give it away to a good cause and help your neighbors in need.

During the month of January, the Gates Public Library will be accepting donations of winter/outdoor clothing and accessories. Donations will benefit Matthew’s Closet, an organization dedicated to assisting those in need in the Rochester area.

Items to donate include:

• New and gently used (and clean) winter outerwear for adults, including, but not limited to coats, jackets, parkas, sweaters. All adult sizes are needed.
• Winter, outdoor accessories for adults, including, but not limited to gloves, scarves, hats, and mittens.
• New socks are also needed (all sizes); no used socks, please.

In these difficult times and colder months, your warm clothing donation can go a long way to helping those with limited resources in our community. Donations can be dropped off during business hours in the boxes marked “Clothing Drive” in the library’s atrium. The clothing drive will be active throughout the month of January.
