Needy Families Receive Winter Coats From St. Leo's

10-25-13 - coat drive

 

Needy families from all over the city came to St. Leo's Catholic Church in Grand Island yesterday to receive a coat and other warm clothing for free in order to help them during the upcoming winter.

 

Many volunteers were on hand to make sure families and homeless people knew what coats are available before the weather gets colder.

 

St. Leo's Outreach Coordinator Donna Douglass organizes the coat drive and she says many preparations paid off.

 

Volunteer Jean McFarland shops for the coat drive year round and she says the community's support continues to inspire her.

 

Over 100 people lined up outside the church and Douglass says despite early concerns, almost 2000 coats were donated for St. Leo's Coat Drive this year.
