Sue Kieswetter reports:
All three Liberty Township fire stations will serve as collection sites for the Society of St. Vincent de Paul’s annual coat drive, which begins Monday.
The goal, organizers say, is to collect 4,000 new or gently used coats by Dec. 1.
The really cold months are December and January so we want to get as many coats as possible to people before then,’’ said Eric Young, spokesman for St. Vincent de Paul.
The drive continues through Dec. 1 and is co-sponsored by WLWT-TV and Gold Star Chili. City Dash is providing pick-up and delivery service. Coats are need for all age groups from infants through adults.
Young said the organization is also looking for volunteers to help sort and hang the coats as well as assisting on distribution days. Volunteers can call 513-562-8841×211
In Liberty Township, the coats can be dropped off at the fire stations located at 5170 Princeton-Glendale Road, 6957 Yankee Road; and at 6682 Princeton-Glendale Road.
Fire Chief Paul Stumpf said any coats collected after the final St. Vincent de Paul collection would be donated to Reach Out Lakota.

- Fairfield: 4470 Nilles Road and 6755 Ohio 4
