Both the Rotary Club of Goshen and the Rotary Club of Warwick selected Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster to be the beneficiary of their winter coat drives this year. The Clubs’ annual community service projects collected nearly 400 coats between the two drives.
The assortment of new and gently used coats for both children and adults are being distributed by Catholic Charities’ staff to area individuals and families in need. Those seeking assistance with winter coats or other basic necessities should email Catholic Charities’ regional helpline at email@example.com.
Each year, the demand for children’s coats is greater than the supply. To make a monetary donation toward the purchase of new coats for children, contact Kristin Jensen at Kristin.Jensen@cccsos.org or call 294-5124, ext. 1005. Donations may also be made securely online at http://www.cccsos.org/donate-now/ – and indicate “winter coat drive” in the notes.
