image002 Now through Feb. 7, you can donate sweaters or other warm clothing to any Sound Credit Union or PCC Natural Markets location to benefit the Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive.

Sound Credit Union has a branch in Lynnwood, located at 18801 Alderwood Mall Parkway. PCC Natural Markets is located in Edmonds, at 9803 Edmonds Way.

Donations will benefit Northwest Center, Wellspring Family Services and Queen Anne Helpline. Last year, more than 7,900 sweaters and coats were donated during the sweater drive.
