Coat Closet opening in Wilton

WILTON — St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 59 High St., will open its yearly coat closet for the rest of the fall and winter beginning the week of Oct. 22.

Each year, the church receives gently used dry cleaned jackets, coats and snowsuits from the Salvation Army. The church also welcomes laundered, gently used winter coats, boots, hats and mitten donations from the community.

Those in need of warm jackets and coats may stop in anytime the church office is open. Those who have donations should contact Lisa Lindsay, parish administrator, to make arrangements.

The parking lot and office entrance are behind the church on School Street. It is recommended that people call the church in advance to be sure someone is there.  Larger sizes tend to be in highest demand and will go first.
