Donate your coats, blankets

Windermere Real Estate in Central Oregon is hosting a “Share the Warmth” coat and blanket drive for community members in need through Dec. 19.

The agency is gathering new or gently used and laundered coats and blankets. Donations can be made at any of the three Central Oregon Windermere offices, as well as Ray’s Food Place in Bend and Redmond and PT Mercantile in Prineville.

Donated items will be distributed to those in need by Bend’s Community Center, Redmond Family Access Network and the Crook County Commission on Children & Families.
