Do This With That Coat You Don’t Want Any More

The Wake Forest Youth Advisory Board will collect clean, gently used coats and jackets from Saturday, March 1, through Monday, March 31, as part of a community service project.

Why we don’t do this in the earlier in the year or in the middle of the summer, escapes us. But anyway, it’s that time again to rummage through your closet and find all the ugly coats you or your spouse owns and get rid of them.

Imagine, you can use this as cover to finally get rid of that purple winter parka with the fake fur your husband had since high school.

Trust us, “But honey it was for a good cause,” is like a Get Out of Jail Free card.

Coats of all shapes and sizes are welcome and may be dropped off at one of the following area locations:

  • Franklin Academy Middle School, 1127 Chalk Road, Wake Forest
  • Franklin Academy High School, 648 Flaherty Ave., Wake Forest
  • Forest Pines Elementary School, 11455 Forest Pines Dr., Raleigh
