It’s the 9th year of the annual “Coats For Kids” Drive, where Granite state residents are asked to donate new or gently used coats at collection centers throughout the state.

Collection boxes have been set up at all 13 Cleary Cleaners locations, as well as the H-R-C-U branches in Dover, Rochester and Farmington. The coats will be dry-cleaned at Cleary Cleaners and then taken to the United Way of the Greater Seacoast and Granite United Way in Manchester for distribution to those in need.
