Ethan Smith partnered with a couple non-profits in the Quad Cities to organize a winter clothing drive.

This weekend, people can drop-off gently used winter clothing and gear in Rock Island at one of two drop-off stations.

Closet-2-Closet located on 5th Avenue will be accepting donations on Saturday from 1 to 5 pm. And Christian Care on 3rd Avenue is open Sunday from 1 to 4 pm.

They accept new packaged socks and underwear as well.

Ethan Smith organized the drive as a part of his Eagle Scouts project.
