The Belmont Police Department along with Brighton-based Cradles to Crayons will be holding a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service Collection drive through Monday, Jan. 15 at 1 p.m.
A collection bin will be in the Belmont Police Department lobby at police headquarters at the corner of Pleasant Street and Concord Avenue across from Town Hall.
The police will be collecting new or like-new warm winter essentials for children up to 12 years old.

- Winter Coats: boys and girls sizes newborn to adult medium
