Bob and I have been doing the Coat and Blanket Drive since 1999. Even after 13 years, we continue to be humbled beyond description at the generosity of our wonderful community. Whenever we've placed a call for donations, we've been deluged with coats, blankets, warm clothing, socks, blankets, sleeping bags, etc. Many have come fresh from the cleaners, some have never been worn, and some people have donated brand new items. All of these were donated in the wonderful, generous and anonymous spirit of sharing. How blessed we are to be part of such a dynamic and thoughtful community -- recession or not, our neighbors still give what they can, and then some.
We'd like to thank you for your continued support in our collection efforts to benefit our "neighbors in need." Sometimes it does "take a village" to help each other weather the storms -- and, boy, does our community rise to the call.
