Recology San Mateo County is launching its annual Coats for Kids Program to collect new and gently used coats to donate to those in need of a warm coat during the cold weather season. From Monday, November 4th through Friday, November 8th, drivers from Recology will collect coats curbside from residential homes on their collection day in Atherton and Menlo Park.
Residents are asked to place coats in a clear plastic bag marked “Coats for Kids” and to then place the bag next to or on the top of their blue Recycle Cart on their regular collection day during that week.
Collection containers labeled “Coats for Kids” will also be placed at various locations in Menlo and Atherton. The drop off locations can be used by anyone interested in making a donation. The “drop off” locations will be accepting coats from Monday Nov. 4 through Friday Nov. 15.
At the end of the drive, Recology will deliver all of the donated coats to local non-profit agencies for distribution to those in need.
Local drop off locations include:
Town of Atherton, 91 Ashfield Rd.
Mon- Fri 8am-12pm; Mon- Fri 1pm-5pm
Arrillaga Family Recreation Center
