The Rotary Club of Highlands and Highlands Mountaintop Rotary have joined forces to bring the community the Winter Warm Wear project that provides anyone in need with coats, socks, and blankets from 2-6 p.m., or until supplies last, on Nov. 17 at the Highlands Community Building.
Donations are still being accepted, but Former Rotary Club of Highlands President and Chair of the WWW project, Sherry Holt, asks people donating used items to please wash them first to comply COVID guidelines.
Donations can be dropped off at the Highlands Rec Park or to Holt at 16 Holly Tree Lane.
“We know that it has been a hard year for everyone, and we just want to help when we can,” said Holt. “It’s amazing how this town comes together for something like this. We have received a lot of new coats for children.”
This is not the first time the Rotary clubs in Highlands have collaborated, as they often work together on projects such as giving out hot dogs on Halloween. Holt said both Clubs have similar goals, so it’s natural they work together.
“We are a club of service, so anytime we can help each other out we do,” said Holt. “In the end we are all working for the same thing, to make a difference in our community. It’s amazing how this town comes together for something like this. We have received a lot of new coats for children.”
