Community Coat Drive This Weekend at Banner Lassen

It gets cold here in the winter. We live in a beautiful place with wonderful seasons, but during winter there are months at a time when you can’t venture outside without a coat or jacket. But what if you didn’t have a coat to wear? What if you were a child with no coat to wear? This is a problem that is far too common in our area and as the mercury drops Banner Lassen Medical Center hopes you will join them for a community coat drive.

Banner Lassen will be accepting clean, new and used coats of any size this Friday, November 11th and Saturday, November 12th in the hospital’s Lassen/Shasta meeting room. Coats will be collected from 9:00a.m. to 3:00p.m. on Friday and from 10:00a.m. to 2:00p.m. on Saturday.

For every coat that you donate you will be entered into a free drawing for a gift basket from the hospital’s gift shop.

All coats will be taken to Crossroad Ministries for distribution to those in need.

Last year Banner Lassen collected more than 300 coats – coats needed not just because of the colder than average weather but because of the poor economy.

“Banner Lassen Medical Center is proud to be a part of this community, and we enjoy hosting community service events such as the coat drive,” explains Banner’s Public Relations Specialist Melissa Blosser, “Our hope is that it is another way we make a difference with our patients and their families.”
