Helpline to benefit from coat drive

Coldwell Banker broker Stephanie Kastner is once again collecting gently used children’s and adults’ coats for Queen Anne Helpline’s clothing bank.

During October, coats can be dropped off in collection boxes at the Umpqua Bank branches in Queen Anne (1630 Queen Anne Ave. N.) and Magnolia (2236 32nd Ave. W., Suite A).

A collection box will also be available at the Queen Anne Farmers Market (Queen Anne Avenue North and Crockett Street) on Oct. 8 and 15, from 3 to 7 p.m. both days.

Coats may also be arranged for pickup by calling (206) 999-1459 or via email at

The Queen Anne Helpline provides financial and other basic needs assistance to residents living in the Queen Anne, Magnolia and South Lake Union neighborhoods who are experiencing hardship.
