Coats for Kids Donations

West Bay Sanitary District is a proud co-sponsor of this year’s Coats for Kids Program. This program provides slightly used coats and jackets to those in need. The District will have a collection bin outside our front office Monday – Friday 9am-3pm until November 18th. Please help if you can. Thank you.
Recology San Mateo County is launching its annual Coats for Kids Program to collect new and gently used coats to donate to families in need during the cold weather season.
From Monday, November 7th through Friday, November 11th, drivers from Recology will collect coats curbside from residential homes on their collection day in Belmont, Burlingame, East Palo Alto, Foster City, Hillsborough, Menlo Park, North Fair Oaks, Redwood City, San Carlos, San Mateo, San Mateo County (county “pockets” serviced by Recology San Mateo County), and West Bay Sanitary District.
Residents in the participating communities are asked to place coats in a clear plastic bag marked “Coats for Kids” and to then place the bag next to or on the top of their blue recycle cart on their regular collection day, during the week of November 7th to 11th.
Collection containers labeled “Coats for Kids” will also be placed at various locations throughout participating cities noted above from November 7th through the 18th.
The drop-off locations can be used by anyone interested in donating, even if their city is not participating in the program this year.
At the end of the annual drive, Recology will deliver all the donated coats to local non-profit agencies for distribution to those in need.
