Those who dread the coming cold winter will benefit from the ongoing coat drive in Enumclaw.

Sponsored by Gamblin Motors and the Enumclaw Clothing Bank, the annual effort aims to supply warm, winter coats for newborns to adults. Accepted are new or gently-used coats.

The drive will continue through Nov. 30 and coats can be delivered to any of four Enumclaw locations: inside the Gamblin Motors main store, 1047 Roosevelt Ave., or inside the Gamblin Truck Center, 205 Roosevelt Ave.; outside Work, Sports and Outdoors, 840 Roosevelt Ave.; or inside Molen Orthodontics, 1771 Farrelly St.

All donations will be given to the Enumclaw Clothing Bank. Those seeking assistance may call 888-889-6199.
