Bill Pringle of the Penn Yan Kiwanis Club (second from right) joined Jim Moon, Mark Moon, Dick Murphy and Stan Olevnick of Nothnagle Realtors Hometown Choice to kick off the 2011 Coats for Kids project.

Every year, local Realtor Jim Moon starts the collection of coats to be donated to the Christmas for the Needy effort in December.

Good used or new coats can be dropped off at Nothnagle Realtors Hometown Choice office, 270 Lake Street, Suite #1, Penn Yan, beginning Oct. 17. The coats are laundered at K&L?Cleaners before being sorted and distributed to children.

If you want to help with the project or have questions, call Moon at 315-694-1235 or email
