Written by 

The second annual “Coats 4 Folks” program in Swain County will continue through Oct. 31, and winter clothes can be dropped off at collection boxes in all county buildings.

Organizers are collecting gently used coats, sweaters, sweatshirts, gloves, scarves, etc., to forward to the Swain County Family Resource Center. As in the past, the center has sorted and made these items available to the public. Swain County Family Resource Center Director, Melissa Barker has announced that they will begin distributing items on Fridays, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. beginning Oct. 22.

If there are severe hardship cases that dictate immediate attention, persons are urged to call Mike Clampitt, 828.736.6222 to make arrangements. “Last years coats program was a great success”
