You can offer warmth to someone this winter by donating a new or gently used coat or winter accessory to Junior Auxiliary. The organization is gearing up for its annual giveaway Nov. 2.“This service is free to the community,” said JA chairperson Marcy Bolding. “We collect coats and winter-weather accessories all year round and provide them free of charge.”Drop-off sites are: Security Federal banks, Tiaras and Tadpoles, Children’s Advocacy Center, Supreme Building Products, McMinnville Drug Center, Dr. Timothy Fisher’s office, and Dr. Bryan Chastain’s office.“We will be glad to come and pick them up from anyone as well,” said Bolding.Junior Auxiliary began offering this service about 15 years ago after organization members received requests by teachers and guidance counselors to help students coming to school during frigid temperatures without a coat.
