TITLE: NICE THING #1 – Winter Clothing Drive
DATE: January 20, 2010
The Howard County Police Department, which I work for occasionally on a part-time basis, collected coats, boots, hats, gloves, scarves, and sweaters for local families in need. This is the first year they did something like this.
I donated a winter coat, two sweaters, a pair of gloves, and four winter hats.
I wasn’t the only person who donated to the clothing drive, but the whole thing went so well they closed their donating period early because they’d run out of room to store the hundreds of coats and sweaters they’d collected.
WOULD I DO IT AGAIN? Yes. No one should ever have to spend the winter worried about whether or not they’ll be warm enough, especially in a county as well off as Howard.
EFFORT: None, just a quick drive up Rt. 29 to the Northern District Police Station.
TIME: 10 minutes
