Coat and Boot Drive

The Annual Coat Drive will begin Friday, October 6th and run to Friday October 20th. The “stuff the bus” campaign will be located at Bill’s Party Store at 1153 E. Grand River, Portland. We will collect clean, usable warm weather coats of all sizes along with snow pants, hats, mittens, gloves and boots. There is always a greater need for children’s coats and snow pants. We will also take nonperishable food items. This is the only location to drop off your items. Please no general clothing or garage sale items!

The Coat Giveaway will be Saturday, October 21st from 10am to 1pm at St. Andrews Lutheran Church located at 8867 Kent Street, just south of I-96. Coats and outerwear are available to anyone needing them.

Another option to get a coat is to visit the Portland Community Clothes Closet located at the Methodist Church, 310 Bridge Street. They are open Mondays 9 am to noon and Thursday 4 pm to 6 pm.

The Annual Coat Drive from The Portland Community Fund is grateful for the support of Portland Public Schools, Ted Goodman of Goodman Dairy Farm, Joel VanSlambrouck/ Scott Teachout of G&B Pool Supply and Bill’s Party Store.
