An amazing result for St. John’s Brussels Caring Coat Campaign. Over 200 men’s, ladies and children’s coats collected, 10 blankets and 10 sheet sets, 4 sleeping bags and 12 pairs of boots, along with many hats, mitts etc .
Twelve people came and got a new coat over the two days of the campaign.
Many of the coats will be distributed locally at the 5 R’s Thrift Store in Brussels and “It Takes A Village” in Listowel. Some coats and the other donations are going to the York Street Mission in London and Park View Hospital.
Thanks to an incredibly compassionate community, many people will be warmer this winter!
