The donation drive is looking for new or gently used coats, scarves, mittens, and socks. The clothing will be split between the YWCA, the Salvation Army, and the Brethren Housing Association.

“We didn’t do it last year, there was nobody here, we have some people coming back to the square and the need hasn’t changed, there are still people out there who really need warmth this winter,” Julie Shade, manager of community development/events at Strawberry Square, said.

The Coats in the Cart drive runs through this Saturday, Dec. 18.
