It's not too late to take part in Operation Cover Up at a fire department near you.
Fire departments from Ogden to Payson and from Park City to Tooele are collecting gently used blankets, hats, coats and gloves for the needy. But the annual collection program ends Dec. 31.
"This is a great time to donate," said Jasen Asay, spokesman for the Salt Lake City Fire Department. "A lot of people will be getting new coats and gloves for Christmas. So, if you've got extra winter clothing that is gently used and in good shape, there are a lot of people in need this year."
