Hunter Mill District Winter Coat Closet Open for Business
Donations and Volunteers Welcome
There’s a chill in the air, and the Hunter Mill District Winter Coat Closet is once again open to help area residents keep warm. In its fourth year, the Coat Closet is co-sponsored by Reston Interfaith and Hunter Mill District Supervisor Catherine Hudgins.
Last year more than 500 coats and jackets were distributed to children and adults in need. Since the Coat Closet opened this year on Nov. 15, close to 700 have already been given out — and more are needed.
The Coat Closet is located in the Hunter Mill District Supervisor’s Office in the North County Government Center, 12000 Bowman Towne Drive, Reston. Open through Feb. 11, its hours are:
- Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to noon
- Thursdays from 5 to 8 p.m.
- Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Donations of new and gently used (in good condition and dry-cleaned) winter coats and jackets for children and adults — extra-large sizes are especially appreciated — may be dropped off at the Hunter Mill District Supervisor’s Office weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Boxes also are available in the North County Government Center for after-hours and weekend donations. All donations are tax-deductible.
Volunteers also are needed to help clients select coats, greet donors and sort donations. Volunteers under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
