A 'Clothing Connection' to keep families warm

This one will require a drive down to Bluffton, but LowCountry Community Church is once again doing their annual Clothing Connection to help get winter jackets and coats to those in need as the temperatures drop.

This Island Packet has a short but nice profile about what the event means to some families; take a read here.

It's Saturday, October 22, from 9 a.m. to noon at 801 Buckwalter Parkway across from Bluffton High). (843) 836-1101.

They're also still seeking donations and volunteers.

Beaufort's Furniture Warehouse Design Gallery also does an annual coat drive that unusually starts in a couple weeks, but no details on that as of yet.
