The Orillia Learning Centre and Simcoe Shores Secondary School (Orillia) are partnering with Laundry Lounge to bring warmth to the community with their annual winter coat drive.

Donations of gently used winter coats can be dropped off from Oct. 10 to Nov. 17 during regular business hours at the following locations:

Coats are needed in all sizes (infant, child, teen, and adult), but especially small children’s sizes and men’s large. All coats will be cleaned prior to distribution. Please note that fur or leather coats cannot be accepted because of specialized cleaning requirements.

All donated winter coats will be distributed at no charge to Learning Centre and Simcoe Shores Secondary School students and to Orillia and area residents. Coats will be available for pickup from Nov. 6 to Dec. 22, Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., at the Orillia Learning Centre.
