Event Description

Because many foster kids arrive at their new homes with only the clothes on their backs, Sleep Country USA is holding its annual Coat Drive for Foster Kids, which will help keep the more than 26,000 foster children in Oregon and Washington warm during the blustery winter months.

New coats in every shape and size can be donated at any Sleep Country USA store and will be distributed among 15 Pacific Northwest foster care partner organizations. For more information on the location of the nearest store, please use the Sleep Country store locater at www.sleepcountry.com or call 1-888-88-SLEEP. Store hours are M-F 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Your Photos

YouNews My Roses My Roses
I took this photo about 10 AM, but since it was in the shade of one of our trees, I decided to use the flash and it made it look more like I had taken it at night.
YouNews Spider from space Spider from space
While plucking dead blossoms from my Petunia plant I noticed this unusual spider so decided to take a photo of it. After loaded the shot in my computer I saw that the design on it's back looked like some sort of 'space alien'. Interesting. Enjoy.
YouNews Private Drone Used to Report Fire Private Drone Used to Report Fire
Saw smoke from a lightening strike in the hills above our place. Flew my RC plane with camera to check out the smoke. At the same time we alerted the fire department and explained we had a drone checking out the situation.
