Herb Philipson’s is teaming up with the Compassion Coalition for the store’s annual coat drive, which has been held each year for more than 30 years.
Beginning on Friday, new and gently used coats for adults and children will be accepted at all nine Herb Philipson’s locations through December 17. Although coats for both adults and children are being accepted, the store says that a much stronger emphasis is being placed on children’s coats.
