The city of Foster City and Recology San Mateo County have teamed up to offer the Coats for Kids program for Recology customers to donate their new or gently used coats to be given to families in need.
During the week of Monday, Nov. 8, through Friday, Nov. 12, residents with curbside service can place gently used or new coats in a paper or clear plastic bag labeled “Coats for Kids” for free pick-up at the curb on their regularly scheduled collection day. Your collection provider will take it from there.
If you do not have curbside service, miss your curbside pick-up date, or just prefer to drop off, collection carts are also located at Round Table Pizza (Marlin Cove Shopping Center, 1084 Foster City Blvd.) and Netra Arts Center (Foster Square Shopping Center, 750 Alma Lane #110) through Friday, Nov. 19 during their regular open hours.
Coats should be new or in excellent “gently used” condition. All sizes are needed for children and adults. Donated coats will be delivered to local nonprofit agencies for distribution to those in need during the upcoming holiday season.
If you have any questions regarding the Coats for Kids program, please call Recology’s customer service line at (650) 595-3900.
