Coat Drive to keep Community Members Warm this Winter-Through December 5

November 13, 2015 from ongoing through December 5th

Coat Drive to help keep community members warm this winter

 

Who: Sasha Ablitt, owner of Ablitt’s Fine Cleaners & Launderers, and Trudi Carey, president of the Carey Group of Santa Barbara.

                 

What:  The One Warm Coat project, a “coat drive” to collect outerwear for those in need.

 

When: Through Saturday, Dec. 5. Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed Sunday.

 

Where:  Ablitt’s Fine Cleaners & Launderers, 14 W. Gutierrez St. in downtown Santa Barbara.

 

Why: Cold weather has arrived in Santa Barbara County, and weather experts are predicting a strong El Niño this winter. Santa Barbara County’s poverty rate is 18 percent. Many local people, including children, don’t have coats because they can’t afford them.

 

More Info: If necessary, Ablitt’s will launder the coats and distribute them. For more information on the “coat drive,” including organizations that would like to request warm coats and/or blankets, call Ablitt’s Fine Cleaners & Launderers at (805) 963-6677.
