Fayette County

Coats will again be collected for Fayette distribution

Herald-Leader Staff Report

Fayette County Sheriff Kathy Witt is looking for used coats to distribute to those in need. She announced Friday that Republic Bank & Trust had volunteered to collect coats at its Lexington branches. Chase Dry Cleaners on South Ashland Avenue will clean the coats before they are distributed.

The annual coat drive collects and distributes more than 1,000 coats each year to individuals and families in Fayette County.

The Republic Bank branches are at 3098 Helmsdale Place, 641 East Euclid Avenue, 2401 Harrodsburg Road and 3608 Walden Drive.

If you are unable to bring your donated items to a Republic Bank branch, you may call the sheriff’s office at (859) 252-1771 to schedule a pick-up time.
