TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Scotch Dry Cleaners and the Salvation Army of Topeka are teaming up to “Share the Warmth” this winter. Starting Monday, people can drop off gently used winter coats at Scotch Dry Cleaners locations across Topeka.
Three Scotch locations in Topeka are accepting donations:
- 134 SE Quincy Street
- 2801 SE California Avenue

Donations will be accepted through Friday, November 22. The donated coats will be cleaned and given to the Salvation Army of Topeka.
