Time to clean out the closet. 

This is the final weekend the Salvation Army will be collecting coats. You can drop yours off at CherryVale mall this weekend. A collection center will be set up at the northwest mall entrance between Penny's and the old Bergner's from 10AM till 6PM, just look for the big white tent and trunk.

Coats must be in good wearable condition - clean with no buttons or zippers missing and no stains or tears. They are also collecting mittens, gloves, hats, and scarves.

If you are unable to make it out to the mall, donations can be dropped off at The Salvation Army Temple 500 S. Rockford Avenue from 9AM till 3:30PM through Tuesday, October 15.

The distribution of the items will be held Thursday, October 17 from 9AM till 4 PM at the Salvation Army Temple. Distribution will go to anyone who needs them, pre-registration is not required. All that is needed is one photo ID for the head of household and proof of address for everyone living in the home.

This is an awesome cause, let's make sure it's their most successful one yet.
