Posted Oct. 26, 2011, at 4 p.m.

CARIBOU, Maine — Members of the American Legion Auxiliary, Henry B. Pratt, Jr. Post 15, will sponsor their annual free coat giveaway 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, at the Legion home on Sweden Street.

The program is intended to provide winter outerwear and coats for local children and adults who need them to stay warm this winter.

To date, items in a variety of sizes have been received from organizations within the local area but the need is great. Auxiliary members are urging donations from anyone who has slightly used winter outerwear that is in good condition including coats, pants and boots.

Clothing may be dropped off between 9 a.m. and noon Saturday, Oct. 29, at American Legion Post 15.
