Garments, shoes, boots being collected through Dec. 6 at her three district offices

CARMICHAELS, Nov. 2 – State Rep. Pam Snyder, D-Greene/Fayette/Washington, today said her three constituent service offices will again collect winter clothes to benefit area families beginning Monday, Nov. 6.

“This is the fifth year we’ve collected winter gear for local residents, and the response has been tremendous,” Snyder said. “Residents have opened their hearts and closets to meet the need locally for cold-weather gear such as coats, jackets, gloves, mittens, scarves, hats and boots.”

Snyder said winter clothing donations will be accepted through Dec. 6 at the following times and locations:

  • 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at the Carmichaels office, 104 S. Market St.

  • 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at the Waynesburg office, 93 E. High St.; and

  • 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays at the Brownsville office, 113 Thornton Road, Redstone Township.

All new and gently used items collected will be distributed through the Waynesburg Salvation Army, the Masontown Helping Hands Ministry and Crosskeys Human Services of Brownsville.

“Hundreds of families throughout Greene, Fayette and Washington counties have benefitted from the donations since we began the drive in 2013,” Snyder said. “The donations create warmth and joy not only among recipients but within the donors, too.”
