LOUISVILLE, Ky.– You can help others while making a trip to the mall. Mall St. Matthews is collecting gently-used blankets, coats, hats, and gloves. The items will go to St. Vincent de Paul.
The collection bin is located near the big chess set in the mall. Items have been collected for about a month now. The drive runs through March 19. Items are needed for men, women, and children.
It’s the first year for the coat and blanket drive at Mall St. Matthews. The mall helped to collect back to school items for the organization in the fall. The items go to needy families in the area.
