Recology San Mateo is launching its annual Coats for Kids Program to collect new and gently used coats to donate to those in need of a warm coat this winter season. From Monday, November 4th through Friday, November 8th, drivers from Recology will collect coats curbside from residential homes on their collection day in Atherton.
Atherton residents wishing to participate are asked to place coats in a clear plastic bag marked “Coats for Kids” and then place the bag next to or on top of their blue Recycle Cart on their regular collection day, during the week of November 4 through November 8.
In addition to the residential pick-up, a collection container marked “Coats for Kids” will be in the lobby at Town Hall, 91 Ashfield Road beginning November 4th through November 15th. Anyone wishing to participate in this program can drop off a coat in the collection container.
All of the coats collected in Atherton will be set aside and distributed to children at Selby Lane School in Atherton.
