Brrrr, Boise. It's getting cold out there. Have coats to donate?

Bring them along when you're shopping at Sierra Trading Post, starting Friday through Nov. 14. The store is collecting new and gently used coats, hats, and gloves to benefit the Boise Rescue Mission. The goal: collecting 1000 items to help those in need keep warm.

Customers will receive a 25 percent discount on their purchase as a "thank you" for donating.

The store is at 530 E. Sonata Lane in Meridian (I-84, Exit 44).

Coats and donations

Good idea. Maybe some of the Mall Stores would donate.
