District Attorney's Office seeks clothing donations for kids

Got old clothes? The District Attorney's Office is calling for donations.

The District Attorney’s Office is asking for the public’s help in contributing to a clothing drive for the children of Hamilton Family Center, Assistant District Attorney Alex Bastian said.

“Given the arctic chill currently hitting our city, it’s been one of the coldest holiday seasons our city has seen,” he said. “Many kids are in dire need of warm clothing.”

In addition to the coat drive organized by the District Attorney’s Office, which ends Wednesday, the Hamilton Family Center will continue to accept and encourage contributions from the public. Among the most needed items at this stage of the season are socks and underwear, spokeswoman Debbie Wilber said.

Hamilton Family Center has a drop-off location at 1631 Hayes St., just north of the Panhandle between Central Avenue and Lyon Street, she said.

The center helps serve the needs of about 400 children in residential programs in The City among other services offered throughout the Bay Area, Wilber said. The facility is staffed 24-7, she said, and all donations are welcome. For more information, visit http://hamiltonfamilycenter.org.Bay Area News
