Won’t you be … a donor? Mister Rogers Sweater Drive @ PCC

(YouTube clip with the opening sequence from a “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” episode)
In honor of the TV legend who always started his show by trading a suit jacket for a comfy sweater, the Mister Rogers Sweater Drive is about to begin at all nine PCC Natural Markets (WSB sponsor) stores, including West Seattle (2749 California SW). Starting next Monday, you’ll be able to donate sweaters at PCC to benefit Wellspring Family Services and Northwest Center. They need kids’ sweaters the most – new or “gently used” – but will accept adult-size sweaters too. The drive, a legacy of Mister Rogers himself (who started it six years before his 2003 death), continues through February 13th and is co-sponsored by KCTS 9; PCC’s full announcement is here.

    Does it have to be a Mister Rogers style sweater (button up cardigan) or can it be a Bill Cosby style sweater (loud pattern pullover)?

      Capo – I believe they’ll take any sweater that is new or gently used and can keep someone warm. Mister Rogers, Bill Cosby, 1940s style “sweater girl,” pullover, button-up, goofy holiday sweater. It’s the warm that counts. – TR

    That sounds like a great idea!
