Tri-Cities Coat Drive Oct. 16 – Nov. 26
Once again our parish will be a drop-off site for Covering the Tri-Cities Coat Drive. The collection box is in the West entrance across from the Adoration Chapel.
Drop your donated coats in the box, where they will be picked up. Plantenga’s will clean them and donate them to local charities!
In 2019 we collected and cleaned over 900 coats; in 2020 just over 1,200; last year we collected 1,988 coats–just 12 shy of 2,000. Wow!
Thank you to all who participated and to Plantenga’s and Tri-Cities Credit Union. All of the coats went to local charities, with most going to Love in Action and the Salvation Army. These two organizations will benefit from this year’s drive, but we are going to expand donations to other local groups that have people in need.
