Berkshire County Arc is accepting gently-used coats, scarves, hats and mittens, as well as winter clothing items that have been knitted or crocheted, from now through April 18.

Dropoff locations include Berkshire County Arc's Community Apartments, 189 First St.; the agency's residential facility at 288 Pecks Road; and Berkshire County Arc's main office, 395 South St.

The agency will hold a second winter clothing drive in the fall and, at that time, all donated items will be distributed to various organizations in the community.
