The Sandwich-Bourne Lions Club is holding its annual coat drive through January 2.

Residents are asked to donate gently used coats for children and adults. All sizes are needed.

Sandwich residents can drop items off at the Sandwich Council on Aging on Quaker Meeting House Road (call 508-888-4737 to schedule a drop-off, since the COA building is closed); Stop & Shop stores on Quaker Meeting House Road and Route 6A, and the Eastern Bank on Route 6A.

Bourne residents can drop clothing off at the Rockland Trust Bank, 172 Clay Pond Road off Route 28.

Anton Cleaners will clean the donated items and send them to community agencies to distribute them to those in need. The Lions urge everyone to clean out their closets and donate to a worthy cause so no one in need is left in the cold.

Any Cape organization that has people in need of warm coats may get information about the Anton Cleaners distribution form by contacting Lion Randy Lewis at
