LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Mayor Andy Schor, alongside the City of Lansing’s Human Relations & Community Services Department, will be hosting their 4th Annual Coat Drive. The drive will last from now through Monday, Oct. 31.

“Winter can be challenging for many,” said Mayor Andy Schor. “I am asking community members to help those who face these challenges by donating new or gently used winter coats, hats and gloves. It’s important to help our neighbors stay safe, healthy and warm this winter season.”

Donation drop-offs can be made at the following locations:

· Lansing City Hall: 124 W. Michigan Avenue
