Princeton Police Department hosts annual coat drive

The Princeton Police Department will be hosting its third Winter Coat Drive through Nov. 16. They are asking Princeton residents to donate winter coats that are in good condition for both children and adults.

The coats that are received will benefit the less fortunate in the Princeton community. Last year’s coat drive saw donations reach 2,000 pounds. The department hopes to surpass that number in 2016.

“We appreciate your anticipated participation and support,” said Sgt. Chris Tash.
