For the seventh year, philanthropy group Omega Nu is organizing a coat drive, collecting donations of clothing for needy women and children in the area. Among several locations around the area, Woodland Nursing and Rehab is collecting donations and encouraging community members to participate.

Omega Nu is a service-oriented sorority started back in the 1920s that continues to provide service to those in need. Omega Nu member Janelle Dwyer, who owns a children’s consignment store in downtown Woodland, have joined forces with Woodland Nursing and Rehab, and others, to make this project happen.

The coat drive is a good fit for the philosophy of Woodland Nursing and Rehab, which strives to provide a comfortable and friendly environment for its residents. Leaders at the local facility recognized the importance of participating in this effort and gladly offered their location as a donation site.

“We are pleased to help participate in such a great cause,” said Robin Nelson, marketing director at Woodland Nursing and Rehab. “We strive to provide outstanding patient care to members of our community as well as neighboring communities. It’s awesome to be working with Omega Nu, a fantastic organization and help bring warmth to people throughout Yolo County.”

Other drop off areas include Kaia Fit Woodland, Oasis Club & Spa, Sweet Potato Pie, Tri-Counties Bank, Wirth Furniture and Interiors, and Yolo Co. Board of Realtors. Please visit this location to donate new or gently used coats for women and children.
