Annual flannel drive to help local kids

Enumclaw Youth and Family Services is conducting its annual flannel/sweatshirt drive for youth.

Every year, new flannel shirts are collected, wrapped and given out during the holidays to youth ages 10-18 who need warm winter clothing. In addition to flannel shirts, EYFS is collecting various sizes of new sweatshirts, preferably men's sizes large and extra large.

These unwrapped sweatshirts can be dropped off at the center between 1 and 6 p.m. Monday through Friday until Christmas. For more information, call the Youth Center at 360-825-4586.

The Youth Center also needs a variety of personal hygiene items (for male and female) such as soaps, shampoos, lotions, toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, hairclips, hairspray, shaving cream, razors, aftershave, deodorant, etc. to be given out to youth in need throughout the year. Donations can be dropped off between 1 and 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, at 1356 Cole St.
