1,500 Warm Winter Coats Have Arrived

Social service agencies are picking up their orders today to distribute to children in need of winter jackets.

The project is nearing a very satisfying conclusion. On Monday morning, 1,500 coats were delivered to the ATC by Joyce Van Lines, and by Tuesday morning volunteers, both teens and adults, had unpacked and sorted them so area social service organizations could begin to pick up their orders.

The coats were donated by Operation Warm at a cost of only 43-cents per jacket and the shipping was free, with thanks to Joyce Van Lines.

The drive was so successful that the ATC is already planning for next year, with hopes of expanding even further.

Good for them! Though hopefully the winter weather will stay the way it is now and the coats won't be needed.
