With the first snow of the season falling across the state, we are reminded that many Rhode Islanders are struggling financially. To help those who may not be able to afford warm coats, hats and gloves, Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin is partnering with the Neighborhood Alliance of Pawtucket to collect winter apparel as part of the annual "Warm Hearts Coats & Stuff Drive."
Now through Monday, November 25th, the public can donate new or slightly worn winter coats, scarves, hats, and gloves for children and adults at the Attorney General's Office located at 150 South Main Street, Providence. The Office is open from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
"The temperature has started to drop, and many families are struggling to get by, worried how to pay the rent and afford heat for the winter. They should not also have to worry about buying a winter coat for themselves or their children. This is an easy way for people to clean out their closets and ensure everyone who needs a coat this winter has one," said Attorney General Kilmartin.
