Annual Coat Drive Happening Now: Gently Used Coats Needed to Provide Warmth for the Winter!October 1, 2017
Help us provide warmth to the needy during our sixth annual coat drive, underway now through the end of November. Because of your generosity, we have already provided more than 1,500 gently used coats to our neighbors in need – let’s keep the tradition going!
Most of us take for granted the ability to pull on our warm coats when the winds start to blow and the temperatures drop, but others in our community are not so lucky. Please take a look through your closets and consider donating gently used fall and winter coats to our Quincy, Weymouth, and Hingham locations now through November 30.
Donations will be professionally cleaned and then distributed to those in need throughout the South Shore by Wellspring Multi-Service Center in Hull, Interfaith Social Services in Quincy, and Weymouth Youth and Family Services in Weymouth.
It’s a great opportunity to clean out your closet and help others in need at the same time! So take a look – you may have gently worn coats in your closets that are outgrown or no longer needed that will be appreciated by those less fortunate.
Each year we are amazed by the generosity of those in our community who help us make our annual Coat Drive such a huge success. Watching our community bringing in their gently used coats during such a busy time reminds us of the true spirit of giving during the holiday season.
Our annual Coat Drive started back in 2012, and we were amazed to exceed our goal of collecting 250 coats during our first-ever drive. Because of the remarkable success of the event, we began collecting coats each fall in order to have the coats ready for the winter season.
“Many of us have gently worn coats that take up space in our closets and can be better utilized by those less fortunate than ourselves. We want to thank all of those in our community who bring in their donations for our coat collection,” said Co-President John Keohane.
Please bring your donations to these Keohane locations:
Keohane Funeral Home at 785 Hancock Street in Quincy
McDonald Keohane Funeral Home at 809 Main Street in South Weymouth
Pyne Keohane Funeral Home at 21 Emerald Street in Hingham
