Coats for Kids calling for donations
–Coats for Kids of San Luis Obispo County is having a limited-time winter coast drive from January 25 and January 31, 2021. Due to pandemic restrictions, Coats for Kids held a limited coat drive in 2020 and the need is still great.

The boxes will be brought outside the front door during business hours and brought in at night to allow for social distancing.
