One of the great things about Occoquan is the spirit of charitable giving prevalent among so many of its residents, business owners, and friends. One instance of that is on display now, in time for tomorrow's Holiday Open House.
One Degree Capital is concluding a drive to collect coats for the less fortunate. You can drop off used coats at their offices at 204 Commerce Street until 4 p.m., Friday, Nov. 16.
The coats they collect will be combined with those collected by young Tessa Yates, last year's recipient of the Prince William Salvation Army's volunteer-of-the-year award. Tessa is holding her second annual coat drive, and will have a bin on the grounds of Town Hall for the collection of coats during Friday's Holiday Open House.
Please consider donating your unused coats for those in need, and thank you both One Degree Capital and Tessa Yates for your commitment to the community.
