Beaufort business gives the gift of warmth and needs your help

For the past two decades Beaufort's Furniture Warehouse Design Gallery has tried to help those in need avoid the costly expense of having to buy a winter coat.

That effort continues this year with FWDG's Annual Coat Drive.

Over the years FWDG has collected thousands of jackets and sweaters and redistributed them out into the community. This year's campaign runs through Dec. 31.

Here's where you can drop off your donations:

  • FWDG, Perimeter Walk, 745 Robert Smalls Parkway, (Hwy 170), Beaufort
  • Bluffton Self Help, 1264 May River Road (Hwy 46), Bluffton
  • BB&T branch offices in Beaufort County:

- 1008 William Hilton Parkway, Unit A, Hilton Head Island

- 200 Main Street, Suite 101, Hilton Head Island

- 2 Burnt Church Road, Bluffton

- 1 Kemmerlin Lane, Lady’s Island

- 905 Port Republic Street, Beaufort

  • Carolina Stamper, 203A Carteret Street, downtown Beaufort

For more information on the coat drive you can check out a fuller press release over at the Beaufort Tribune.
