Clothing drive to benefit Union Gospel Mission

Mercer Island resident Szu-Raj Kothari, of Boy Scout Troop 624, is holding a clothes collection drive for his Eagle Scout project.

His goal is to collect 1,000 articles of winter clothing to be donated to Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission this fall.

Every winter, the mission falls short of its needs for winter clothing.

Kothari hopes his project will be able to satisfy their needs this year.

- Sweaters, sweatshirts

- Socks and thermals

- Long pants, jeans

- Gloves and hats

- Jackets

Donations will be collected from 9 until 11:30, on Saturday, Sept. 1, at the North end Albertsons, and between 4 and 6:30 p.m. at the South end QFC.
