Mex 1 Collecting Used Winter Coats

Although the recent weather hasn’t been especially compatible with winter coat-wearing, it’s critical that kids have the right outerwear when winter strikes, which is why Mex 1 Coastal Cantina is collecting coats for Communities in Schools.

If you bring a gently-used coat to Mex 1 on Dec. 18, the West Ashley restaurant will chop 15 percent off your bill. And if you’re looking to win gift certificates, Mex 1 is awarding prizes for the evening’s best ugly sweaters.

The event starts at 6 p.m. For more information, visit Mex 1’s Facebook page.
