MOSES LAKE — If you have a gently-used winter coat you are looking to get rid of then you are in luck, as the Moses Lake Rotary Club is currently collecting winter coats as a part of its annual “Coats 4 Kids” distribution.

The club is collecting the coats until Oct. 20. The coats will be distributed to low-income families from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. Nov. 4 in the cafeteria at Chief Moses Middle School, 1111 E. Nelson Rd.

The club has been involved in the annual project since 1997 and has partnered with Cedar Street Cleaners, which cleans all of the collected coats free of charge before they are distributed. The club is accepting all sizes of heavy coats, but organizers say the biggest need is for boys’ and girls’ coats sizes 6 to 8. Each year the club distributes between 500 and 700 coats, a tremendous undertaking that pays off in the end when hundreds of locals in need receive a good winter coat.

Coat drop boxes have been placed in the following locations in Moses Lake:

• Cedar Street Cleaners, 319 S. Cedar St.

• Moses Lake Christian Academy, 1475 Nelson Rd. NE

• Laketown Pharmacy, 1550 S. Pioneer Way

• Moses Lake PUD Office, 312 W. Third Ave.

• Samaritan Hospital, 801 E. Wheeler Rd.

• Skaug Brothers Ace Hardware, 944 W. Third Ave.

• South Campus Athletic Club, 1475 Nelson Road NE

• Umpqua Bank, 101 E. Fourth Ave.
