Donations to our annual coat drive were at an all-time high this year. Thirty-four men and women’s jackets; 66 youth and teen coats; over 60 toddler and infant jackets and snow pants; five pair of boots; 45 hats; 44 pair of gloves/mittens; 14 scarves and additional vests, sweaters, and baby blankets were collected.
Donations will be divided between two locations, Mary’s Shelter and Allentown Rescue Mission. Mary’s Shelter is a local organization that supports families in the community and works to prevent homelessness through housing, education and social service programs. Allentown Rescue Mission offers rehabilitation and restoration for people in crisis.
Thanks to our community for the generous outreach as the winter approaches and to our fifth-grade teaching team and students for organizing this community service effort.
