Adventure Advertising of Rockport has teamed up with The First National Bank and Threshers Brewing in an effort to gather warm clothing for the Knox County Homeless Coalition. Boots, socks, coats, hats and any other warm winter clothing or blankets are needed for all sizes and for all ages – from infant to elderly- to help protect people from the cold this winter. Clothing donations are being gathered until Jan. 15.

The Knox County Homeless Coalition works with individuals and families in Knox County to help provide safe shelter from the cold and elements. The goal of the programs provided is to help individuals and families achieve sustainable independence. In addition to the client care programs offered, The Knox County Homeless Coalition operates The Landing Place with a comprehensive youth program, and The Hospitality House, an extended stay family shelter.

New and gently used clothing can be dropped off at First National Bank locations in Rockland as well as Camden and Rockport, Threshers Brewing in Searsmont and at Adventure Advertising in Rockport.

Adventure Advertising will be hosting the Penobscot Bay Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours event at 5 p.m. Wednesday at 29 Commercial St.

Attendees are encouraged to bring an article of clothing to donate. The Knox County Homeless Coalition will also be speaking at the event.
