• Coat drive helps local people in need stay warm

    Warming Communities…One Coat at a Time

    The need has never been greater and it’s never been easier to make a difference in your community. Here is your opportunity to make sure that nobody goes without such a basic necessity as a coat this winter.

    The Girl Scouts of California Central Coast are collecting clean, gently used coats and jackets as part of the One Warm Coat community service project. Coats of all shapes sizes are welcome. One Warm Coat is dedicated to distributing reusable coats, free of charge, directly to local children and adults. The program is an easy way for you and your family to pass along coats and jackets that you no longer need.

    Girl Scouts have made donating a coat simple. Just bring your clean, gently used coats and jackets to Del Monte Center from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturdays starting November 26 through December 17 and again on December 31. Then the Girl Scouts will take care of the rest. All donated coats will be given to the Boys & Girls Club in Seaside and to Dorothy’s Kitchen in Salinas for distribution to local people in need. And a special thank you to Del Monte Center and Country Club Cleaners for their continued support for this wonderful cause.

    “More people than ever need help these days.  I am proud of the thousands of coat drive organizers whose creativity and generosity of spirit are making a real difference in their own communities.” commented Sherri Wood, President and National Coordinator for One Warm Coat.

    One Warm Coat is national non-profit organization that supports and encourages coat drives. It helps individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country collect coats and deliver them to local agencies that distribute the coats free to people in need. More than one million coats have been provided to those in need at no cost since its inception in 1992.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
