The North Myrtle Beach Fire/Rescue Department's collection drive for winter coats for homeless youths was a success. 73 winter coats were donated, along with a variety of hats.
The coats and hats will be distributed to homeless youths through Sea Haven For Youth, which provides emergency crisis services for people ages 13-21 years old.
We thank all who donated to this good annual effort. And we thank Fire/Rescue personnel, under the coordination of Firefighter/EMT Aaron Asbury, for their continued dedication to this initiative.
