My two oldest boys held a coat drive to help warm those in need in our community. December brought brutal cold here in NH, frost bite in less than 15 minutes to exposed skin. It was apparent that now more then ever coats and donations were needed to help people in our area.
I am forever grateful for One Warm Coat for giving my sons the resources to help others and for raising awareness that anyone can help others no matter their age. Chase, age 10 and Tripp, age 7 collected a total of 202 coats and $75 to help those in our community that could not otherwise afford warmth this season. They donated the coats collected to the Southern New Hampshire Missionary who helps feed, clothe, and provide shelter to the homeless in our area.
The certificate the boys received today from One warm Coat will always be a cherished reminder of the good the boys did this year. This will surely be a new family tradition for us. After all isn’t that what being human is about, lifting and helping each other up? We as a family appreciate One Warm Coat for their help in making our coat drive possible! Keep warm my friends!
