We are less than three months away from the official beginning of winter and Christmas. It's warm now but this weekend, it starts to cool down. There are people in our area that are looking for coats and boots to help them keep warm.

Do you have a coat (or coats) or boots that you don't need anymore? Here's a way to help those in our area.

Project Concern, 23 Kattelville Road in Chenango Bridge is having their annual winter coat/boot giveaway. It's Monday, October 10th-14th from 2p-4p and October 17th-21st from 2-4. It's more than coats and boots. It's also snow pants, hats, gloves, and scarves.

They only ask for a $2 donation to help keep the lights on. My wife, Dawn is a volunteer and they've been preparing for months for the annual winter coat/boot giveaway.

Project Concern provides clothing, household goods, and basic necessities They serve Broome, Chenango County, and Tioga County. It's eligible for anyone in need. It's non-profit and is run by volunteers and relies 100% on donations.

NorthPointe Church is doing a "Winter Coats for Kids (and adults too) Giveaway for Project Concern. We are looking for new and gently used coats that we will give to them.

Since I'm a member and work for 98.1 the Hawk, we are looking to collect 98 coats to give to Project Concern and their giveaway.

Here's how you can help. You can drop them off at NorthPointe at 126 E. Service Road in Hillcrest. It's in the same plaza as Uncle's Place and Iron Works.

You can bring them Sunday morning if you like. You don't have to stick around but you are more then welcome too.

You can also drop them off at the Hawk Studio, 59 Court Street in Binghamton. They'll have to be here by 5 o'clock this Friday. I'll take them to NorthPointe for you.
