The Ocean City Board of REALTORS® is pleased to announce its fall community service project, a drive to collect coats, sweaters, scarves, hats, and other cold weather items. Donations will be collected now through November 23rd and will be used to give the gift of warmth for winter to those in need in Ocean City.
The Warmth for the Winter Drive will collect gently used or new items. Needed most is clothes and coats for men, hats, scarves, gloves and socks. Also hats, gloves, coats, and scarves for children. Blankets, sheets, and comforters are needed as well.
You are invited to clean out your closets at home and help others in the process. Would you be willing to sort through your unwanted clothing and set aside items that still have some use? The Ocean City Ecumenical Clothes Closet would appreciate your donations.
Donations can be dropped off at the office of the Ocean City Board of REALTORS®, 405 22nd Street. (Office hours: Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-5 p.m.) We ask that all donations are placed inside a plastic bag, and plastic bags will be provided as needed.
“It’s time to switch over your wardrobe from summer to winter, we encourage our fellow REALTORS®, friends and neighbors to donate items that are gently used or new, that will provide warmth for the winter to families in need” said Gloria Votta, Chair, Community Services Committee, Ocean City Board of REALTORS®.
