The City’s Youth Engagement Initiative is sponsoring a coat drive for Evanston teens. Coats of all sizes for males and females are needed. New coats or used coats that are clean and in good repair are welcome.

Donations will be accepted through the end of December. Please bring all donations to Sol Anderson, youth coordinator, in suite 4600 of the Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave.

The coats will be distributed to local youth by the Police Department’s Outreach Team. Any coats not distributed will be given to local youth-serving organizations to distribute to the communities that they serve.

For further information, call (847) 448-8049.
