Once again, PCL is delighted to help support the Buy Nothing Day Coat Exchange. This event has been taking place at sites around Rhode Island for the last 20 years, encouraging people to donate new and used, warm coats and top layer clothing to others who need them at this chilly time of year. Here's how you can help!
Please bring your new and gently used coats, scarves, hats, gloves, sweaters and sweatshirts and deposit them in the donation boxes at all PCL locations by November 23. Children's coats and gloves and adult coats, 2X or larger are in particular demand! Your donations will be taken to an event on the State House lawn on Black Friday, November 24 and given to folks who need them!
You can view a recent NBC10/WJAR news report by R.J.Heim about the event, featuring our own Michelle Novello at Rochambeau Library here.More information about 2017 Buy Nothing Day Rhode Island, including a list of all the collection and distribution sites around Rhode Island, can be found on BND Rhode Island's Facebook page.
