August 27, 2008 · Updated 4:45 PM
Gently used coats, hats, scarves and mittens are being collected throughout the month of January for kids in need in its 11th annual Warm Coats for Kids campaign.
All donations will be distributed in Western Washington through local social welfare agencies.
As people shop winter sales and clean out their closets, we encourage them to think of those less fortunate during these coldest days of winter, said Becky Skaggs, spokesperson for Haggen, Inc.
Customers of Haggen Food & Pharmacy and TOP Food & Drug have donated between 5,000 and 6,000 coats annually to the drive in recent years. North county Haggens are located at 2015 74th Ave. N.E., Arlington; 3711 88th St. N.E., Marysville and at 26603 72nd Ave. N.W., Stanwood
