That being said, it is time to dig into your closets and pry out that overcoat you haven't worn since 1999 and take it over to Casey's. Or District 203's office on Hillside. Or the YMCA (Washington Street and/or 95th Street). Leave the leather gloves in the pockets because the Rotary folk need your winter clothing. All sizes are accepted.
So quit that woolen hoarding habit and help those in need. You have until November 19.
Besides, raccoon is just so 2009.
