(OXNARD, Calif.) – Nov. 9, 2018 — Make room in the closet for your fabulous Black Friday finds by donating your old coats! The Collection at RiverPark is partnering with One Warm Coat and will be collecting coats to donate to community members in need for the holiday season. Anyone wishing to give any gently used coats and jackets are encouraged to go to Park View Court in front of The Annex Food Hall on Nov. 23 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. to drop off their donations. All items collected will be going to local nonprofit organizations.
Donors who donate any gently used coats and jackets will have the opportunity to either decorate a cookie or take home a freshly baked cookie courtesy of Scratch Sandwich Counter located at the Annex Food Hall.
After a busy weekend of shopping, stroll on over to the Annex Food Hall and unwind with a warm cup of hot coco and hear your favorite holiday stories with Mrs. Claus. On Mondays Nov. 19 – Dec. 17 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. join Mrs. Claus as she treats youngsters to delicious goodies and story time as she reads her favorite holiday tales.
