Coat donations sought to help the needy

Outside Hilton Head's annual "Recycle Your Jacket" drive starts today and runs through Feb. 15. It seeks to provide winter coats and jackets to those who can't afford them.

Bring clean jackets and coats to the shop at the Plaza at Shelter Cove. They will be distributed through the Deep Well Project. Discounts for new coats are offered for those who donate.

This is the 19th year of the drive, which has collected more than 5,500 coats, according to a news release from Outside Hilton Head.
