MARLBOROUGH – A drive is underway to collect new, or gently used, winter coats.

Through Jan. 16, coats for children and adults may be dropped off at The Recovery Connection, 31 Main St.; Addiction Referral Center, 33 Main St.; and the Board of Health, City Hall, 140 Main St.

According to Kathy Leonard, chairwoman for Marlborough Alliance for Prevention, one of the drive’s co-sponsors, said the alliance would like to obtain larger adult sizes (medium, large, XL and XXL).

Hats, scarves, gloves and blankets, new or gently used, will also be accepted.

The drive is also sponsored by The Recovery Connection and the Addiction Referral Center.
