It is time to donate extra coats to the Humanitarian Center. Marie Ohman says there are pick-up centers at Brigham City’s Kent’s Market Place, Smith’s, Box Elder County Credit Union, Attitude, Hair and Nails, and Tremonton Kent’s and Ridley’s; Bear River City’s Country Archers, Howell’s Lyle and Lois Nessen’s home; and Corinne’s Bear River Valley Co-op. There is also a pick-up center at Honeyville’s Lainie’s store. Marie gives her thanks to all who contribute. The drop-off boxes will be checked and unloaded frequently. All coats will be delivered to the Humanitarian Center in Salt Lake City. The 10,000 coat goal last year was comfortably met.
