A coat is so much more than a garment. It is security on a cold day at the bus stop. It is a reminder that someone cares.
Each year, individuals and community groups come together with NFCC to make sure families in our community have coats and winter accessories to keep them warm when the temperature drops. This year, NFCC is once again collecting coats, scarfs, hats, mittens and gloves for children and adults and distributing them to families in need.
Together, last year we provided 1,664 people in need with coats as well as hats, mittens and other accessories. We expect that need to continue this year as basic expenses remain high.
Collection: October 3-5, 2022
