What an incredible success this year's Coat Drive was !
Carloads of coats, tops, hats, gloves & scarves were donated and picked up.
Jeannie, Richard, Serkan & I sorted out the donations today at Richard's house. His wife, Marianne made us delicious hot cocoa and tea as it was cold outside! Thank you Marianne!
All in all, we collected over 296 coats and winter-wear for Immigrants and the Homeless, plus over 6 huge bags of related items for Hitchcock Church's Thrift shop where proceeds go to help those in need.
Here is the incredible tally going to:
Adults @ New Immigrant Community Empowerment (NICE) in Queens: 135 items (40 coats, 42 tops/fleeces, 43 scarves, gloves, hats, + other items)
Kids @ New Immigrant Community Empowerment : 120 items (48 coats, 15 tops, 48 scarves, boots, gloves, hats, + other items)
Homeless @ Midnight Run: 40 items ( 13 coats, 23 scarves & gloves)
Hitchcock Church Thrift Shop : Over 6 HUGE bags of lighter weight coats, off season items, other items
We'll deliver them all within the next week.
THANK YOU ALL who helped out and who donated (Jeff and Jeannie - wow!)
