The Recreation and Parks Department is looking for donations of new or gently used clothing and gear for winter recreation. We will be distributing items to residents that need them to be warm outside when going about their daily lives or playing in the snow.
Please wash all items and bundle each pair of mittens/gloves/boots together and drop them off at the Community Activity Center (5600 85th Ave N) in the Senior Lounge Coat Closet by January 19, 8 p.m.
We need items for all genders and ages, infant to adult.
Boots: Waterproof and insulated.
Coats, Jackets, and Vests: Insulated coats, fleece items, insulated vests.
Accessories: Insulated and waterproof mittens, gloves, snow pants, warm hats that cover ears, scarf, neck warmer, socks (wool or fleece). No thin gloves or cotton socks.
Gear: Sleds, snowball makers, snow fort forms, snow toys.
