There are only a few more days to participate in the Jordan’s Furniture’s 17th annual Coats for Kids drive before it ends on January 8, 2012. Donations of gently-used Mens, Womens, Childrens, and Infants coats will be accepted at any Jordan’s Furniture or Anton’s Cleaners location. Check out Anton’s and Jordan’s websites for their locations.

This month, the Wachusett Watershed Regional Recycling Center, 131 Raymond Huntington Highway, West Boylston, will be open from 2:30-4:30 p.m., every Wednesday and from 8-11 a.m. on Saturday, January 21, 2012. They take many items for no fee, such as bicycles, #1-7 plastics, items with mercury, batteries, gas grills, and fluorescent lighting tubes.  Other items require a fee. These would be items like furniture, large appliances, TVs, and tires.  For more information, including other categories of items they accept, click here.

The Kelley Backpacks Program creates backpacks in urgently needed materials that are given to children who are being checked out at UMass Memorial Hospital prior to going into foster care. The kids sometimes have very few possessions during this transition. The program is looking for donations of new or “good-as-new” backpacks, pajamas, underwear, socks, hats, gloves or mittens and baby wipes. Donations of stuffed animals, blankets, personal hygiene items, toys and games, books, notebooks, pens, pencils, crayons, markers, diapers and formula are also welcome. The program also need goods for both boys and girls from infant through 18 years old.  For more information about the program or how to donate, email kelleybackpacks@gmail.com.
