All but one customer from Clean Enterprises' Quarryville location has picked up dry cleaning left before the store closed.
The company announced last month it would discontinue its dry cleaning and shirt laundry services.
While almost all of the clothing has been claimed, the decision is causing some concern for donation programs that run before Christmas.
Members of Little Britain Presbyterian Church are working to save the Solanco Coats for Kids program.
For more than 30 years, Solanco students collected coats which were then cleaned and displayed so people can pick out the ones they need.
Until this year.
That's when the church congregation stepped in.
"In the second week of October, we realized the school district wasn't going to do it this year," organizer Lynne Hart said.
"A lot of us have coats that are too small."
That doesn't mean those coats should spend the coming winter in a closet, Smith Middle School eighth grader Sophie Plechner said last week. Plechner and other members of the school's Pride Ambassadors are trying to drum up enthusiasm for this year's Coats for Kids campaign.
The annual effort is already underway and has just over two weeks to collect, sort, and clean coats, mittens, gloves, hats, scarves, and sweaters. The winter wear will then be distributed to anyone in the Southern End who needs warm clothing to get through the colder months ahead.
