Every year at this time, our Townsquare Media radio stations, 99.1 The Whale, 98.1 The Hawk, Kiss 104.1, New/Talk 1290 WNBF and 1360 Binghamton join with the Oakdale Mall for an important warm clothing drive.

It may not be in the forefront of our minds at this time of the year with all that goes on during the busy holiday season, so that's why we are letting everyone know that the need for warm winter clothing is a real thing.

For whatever the reason may be, and it really doesn't matter, anyone at anytime can find themselves or their families in need of winter clothing. Funds may be tight, and after paying monthly bills, there may be very little or none for clothing to help get the family through the cold winter.

We're looking for donations of new or gently used coats, mittens, scarves and hats. Check your closets. You may find items that you are never going to use again, but would be very useful for someone else.

Drop off any donations you may have at the Red Holiday House which is on display next to Burlington in the Oakdale Mall, now through December 31st.

All your generous donations will be distributed to The Salvation Army, the YWCA, Rescue Mission/Thrifty Shopper and Project Concern.

We are so thankful for they way our community steps up to help families in need. Our recent Food-A-Bago food drive proved that fact, and hopefully our community will do the same with this month's warm clothing drive.

Thank you, and have a wonderful holiday season from all of us at Townsquare Media Binghamton!
