CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The city of Corpus Christi is hosting Holiday collection drives at all city public libraries benefitting the Corpus Christi Animal Control Services and local nonprofit agencies.

The Critter Comfort Drive will collect new, unopened cans of cat food, cans of dog food, blankets, towels, and chew toys. Bagged food is not accepted, and the collection ends on January 31, 2023. These items will go directly to the animals at Corpus Christi Animal Care Services.

The Winter Coat Drive will collect gently used coats, jackets, and sweaters in all sizes. The collection also ends on January 31, 2023, and the coats will go directly to local nonprofit agencies.

All the City’s public libraries are drop-off locations for the holiday drives.
