MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — For the second straight year, a Martinsburg woman and her two sons are collecting donations of used jackets and other winter clothing to help needy people during cold weather.
Single mother Amanda Sonday says her project, Shared Cotton, is a byproduct of her previous involvement with charity projects in the Washington, D.C. area.
Sonday says she took 135 coats to a mission in Martinsburg last year and they were distributed in less than an hour.
She's collected more than 100 coats already this year. She tells The Journal (http://bit.ly/16SelFk) she's looking for more donations, especially hats, gloves and scarves.
Sonday arranges most of her collections through the Shared Cotton Facebook page, www.facebook.com/SharedCotton .
