Democrats hold warm-coat drive

Staff report
The Rowan County Democratic Party is conducting a warm-coat drive to help individuals and families in need.
In addition to coats, organizers of the drive are asking for other clothing items, including socks.
Genoal Russell, county Democratic Party chairwoman, said all donations will go to Rowan Helping Ministries.
“There’s a lot of good to be done at Christmas,” Russell said Monday. “A lot of people need things.”
She contacted the ministry to find out what the most pressing needs are. The list includes warm coats in all sizes, from children’s to large and adult plus sizes.
The coats need to be in good repair and clean.
The ministry can also use new socks and underwear of all sizes.
Anyone who has coats or other items to donate may drop them off at 115-A E. Council St. from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The party has enlisted the help of churches throughout the area.
To have donations picked up, call 704-633-8482.
All donations must be in by Dec. 10.
