Local Ferrellgas office collecting winter clothing items

As a company that serves the propane needs of hundreds of local homes, businesses and farms, Ferrellgas knows a thing or two about keeping the members of this community warm.

This year, Ferrellgas is once again asking residents to collaborate with them to spread even more warmth throughout the Winchester area.

Now through Dec. 4, Ferrellgas is collecting new and gently used coats, hats, scarves and gloves and putting them in the hands of the less fortunate members of our community.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, donations can safely be made in an outdoor bin at 101 Victory Ave. in Winchester. At the end of the coat drive, Ferrellgas will donate the items to Clark County Community Services.

“We’re proud to once again be a part of the Share The Warmth campaign and be able to give back to the community,” Ferrellgas General Manager Kelly Able said. “We may be a national propane company, but we take pride in making an impact right here, in an area that many of us grew up in.

“For some families, a warm coat is a luxury that cannot be taken for granted, and we are grateful for all the donations that will be collected to meet this critical need. And like all businesses during these uncertain times, we’ve taken the necessary steps to ensure you can feel safe donating items at our office.”

Residents do not have to be Ferrellgas customers to participate in the donation drive.

Because of COVID-19, Ferrellgas asks all donations be washed or in clean condition prior to dropping them off.
