Shelton Democrats join coat drive to help the needy

The Shelton Democratic Town Committee (DTC) is participating in a coat drive for the Bridgeport Rescue Mission.

The Bridgeport Rescue Mission hopes to collect 15,000 winter coats that will be distributed to needy children and their families during the holidays, beginning in mid-November.

The DTC is asking people to donate new and gently used winter coats in all sizes for men, women and children.

Coat donations can be dropped off now at two Shelton locations: Center Services, 8 Huntington St.; and Liquid Lunch, 6 Research Dr., Suite 110.
