Coat Drive Continues

Coats and warm shirts and jackets are greatly needed.

Warm winter outerwear is still in much demand by the workers. There is not much work available at this time of year and many days require standing on the street in the cold wind, hoping for any job that may come along.

For several years CoFia, with the Rotary Club of the Palisades, has collected coats at the Leonia Public Library for distribution at the Monday lunch program. This year the Unitarian Society of Ridgewood is also soliciting winter outerwear for the workers.

Most in demand–heavy work jackets, small and medium sizes; warm work gloves; stocking hats. New warm socks are also welcome.

Moore’s Hardware in Leonia continues to provide a free pair of new work gloves for each worker at the Monday lunch during the holidays. Many thanks!
