As winter approaches, four Windermere Real Estate offices on the Oregon coast are hosting Windermere’s annual “Share the Warmth” coat and blanket drive in partnership with local service agencies. Now through December 17, fellow citizens can help their neighbors in need by donating coats, blankets and other warm items.
Any and everyone can bring new or gently used and laundered coats (for children and adults) and blankets to the following Windermere offices during the designated drop-off hours. The Cannon Beach and Gearhart offices are also collecting donations of mittens, gloves and hats.
Cannon Beach – 255 N Hemlock, Suite B1, Sunday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Gearhart – 588 Pacific Way, Sunday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition, Clatsop Community Bank, which is located at 1150 N Roosevelt Drive #101 in Seaside, is participating as a donation drop-off site for the “Share the Warmth” coat and blanket drive.
