Columbia Association clothing drive

    The holiday season is approaching and many of our local organizations are making their annual appeals for donations. Today's appeal comes from the Columbia Association. Maybe cleaning out your closet can free up closet space and benefit someone in our community. Here is where you can donate:
    "Collection boxes have been placed around Columbia for Columbia Association’s (CA) 5th annual clothing drive organized by CA’s Youth and Teen Center and its Teen Outreach Committee. Collection boxes have been stationed at:
       all 10 village community association buildings
       Columbia Art Center (located at 6100 Foreland Garth in the Long Reach Village Center)
       Youth and Teen Center @ The Barn (located at 5853 Robert Oliver Place in the Oakland Mills Village            Center)
        Eggspectation restaurant (6010 University Blvd., Ellicott City)

     The collection boxes will remain at these facilities through Friday, Nov. 29. Those donating can bring in new and gently used clothes, shoes and accessories, including but not limited to ties, belts, hosiery, hats, gloves, pocketbooks and jewelry.

    These donated items will then be distributed to community members in need on Saturday, Jan. 18, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and on Sunday, Jan. 19, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Both distribution days will be held at The Barn, which is located at 5853 Robert Oliver Place in the Oakland Mills Village Center.

Youth who are interested in earning community service hours by assisting with the collection, sorting, set-up and distribution should contact Safire Windley or 410-992-3726."
