(Dec. 8, 2017) To spread some holiday warmth, Royal Farms stores are sponsoring a winter clothing donation drive to support Salisbury-based Halo Ministries.

Sharon Nickoles, who manages the Royal Farms store at 8307 Coastal Highway, said gently used coats, hats, gloves, scarves and blankets would be accepted at all area locations until Wednesday, Dec. 13.

“We want to make sure people are prepared for the upcoming winter season,” she said.

In many cases, children have outgrown coats from the prior year, and that, Nickoles said, provides an ideal opportunity to exhibit some Christmas kindness.

“If you have old coats filling up valuable closet space, or even rarely used blankets, this is your chance to lend a hand to the less fortunate,” she said.

HALO, which stands for the Hope and Life Outreach, originally launched in 2004 as the Center of Hope, an outreach ministry of Oak Ridge Baptist Church in Salisbury.

In 2007 it registered as a distinct nonprofit named HALO, which since that time has operated a year-round homeless shelter for men, women and children, as well as offering a long-term life-change program to those in need.
