Guardian Self Storage in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., is sponsoring the Dutchess Outreach Susan DeKeukelaere Memorial Coat Drive in October.
The drive is seeking clean, gently used coats for children and adults, including plus sizes. All coats are distributed to families in the Dutchess, Orange and Ulster County areas. Coats can be dropped off at any Guardian Self Storage location from Oct. 1 through Oct. 31. They’ll be distributed in November. The 2009 coat drive netted 6,200 coats.
Family-owned Guardian Self-Storage opened its doors in Fishkill, N.Y., 25 years ago. Since that time the business has grown to 12 locations in New York.
