Coats for the Community distribution tomorrow

Coats and winter accessories will be distributed on Saturday, Oct. 3, from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. behind the United Way building. Any person in need is welcome to come and collect winter items. 

The coat drive is one of United Way of the Bemidji Area’s community impact initiatives aimed to help meet the basic needs of those who may otherwise have to go without.

The annual coat drive is sponsored by Bank Forward and supported in partnership by Paul Bunyan Broadcasting’s KZY 95.5, Z99, KBUN Sports Radio, and Continuous Country KB101.
