Coat drive helps keep people warm in winter
Organizers: Donations of all sizes needed
Brett Schofill helps load up donated coats at Andrew's Klean Korner for the Bulloch Lions Club Coats for Kids program in December 2010.
With cold weather already making an appearance, it’s time for coats and sweaters. Unfortunately, many people can’t afford warm clothing.The Bulloch Lions Club hopes to help provide those in need with warm coats and jackets through the annual “Cozy Coats for Kids” campaign. Club president Jim Ward said while the name specifies “kids,” the effort is for adults in need as well.Citizens can drop off coats, sweaters, and jackets at any Andrews Klean Korner location or at Greener Cleaners, he said.,There, the dry cleaners will clean and repair the garments and take them to Worn Threads, where people with vouchers can pick out warm clothing to protect them from the elements, he said.“This is a very worthwhile project we’ve done for a number of years, that has benefitted many people,” Ward said.
