Coat Drive For Children In Need

Coat Drive For Children In Need

Clovis Police Corporal Dustin Dodd, joined by Officer Scott Borsch, is renewing his winter coat drive for children in the City of Clovis this holiday season.

Last year, the public and members of the police department donated a total of 475 new or gently used coats and jackets for those in need.

Donors are encouraged to drop off new or gently used coats to any of the following partner locations: Caltrans, which provided the drop off bins at area stores and churches; Target Corporation; Walmart Supercenter on Herndon Avenue; Kohl's at Sierra Vista Mall and all Clovis CVS stores.

Several area churches are accepting donations as well.

The goal is to provide a coat for every child in need in the Clovis Unified School District this winter season.

The coat drive runs through December 15th.

Please note, there are drop-off bins located in several Fresno stores as well.

Great Valley Toy Drive Through December 15th

Help bring a smile to a child in need during the holidays by dropping off a new, unwrapped toy at any of the Great Valley Toy Drive drop-off locations.

We have partnered with local charities, Poverello House and Transitions Children's Services, to collect and distribute toys to help children who may not receive anything this Christmas because of circumstances beyond their control.
