Storage Village Self Storage is holding its third-annual coat drive through Oct. 31 at all five of its locations in Maryland and Virginia. Each facility is partnering with a local nonprofit organization to make sure donated garments go directly to helping community members, company officials said.
The company’s North Bethesda, Md., location, for example, has partnered with A Wider Circle, a nonprofit dedicated to assisting community members rise above poverty. All coat donations will be offered through the organization’s onsite store.
“Storage Village looks forward to working with the community to help keep our neighbors in need warm this winter,” said L. Goldberg, Storage Village president.
The company’s previous coat drives have provided hundreds of garments to residents. Donated coats should be new or in gently used condition.
The drive is one of several community events Storage Village holds during the year. Next month, the company will donate more than 100 Thanksgiving meals through its annual “Room for Dinner” campaign.
Storage Village has four self-storage locations in Maryland and one in Virginia.
