Coats for kids

Coat drive collection

I helped pick up coats for kids last week in North Minneapolis.  The organizer of this event, John Martin, is planning to have a distribution of coats on the day after Thanksgiving at the Urban League.

We stopped by about 8 locations where John had placed collection boxes on the Northside. Micky's Liquor, pictured left, was the biggest contributor.

Sadly there are growing numbers of people living in extreme poverty.  A recent article in the StarTribune, Poorest poor hit record high, documents this disturbing trend.

Interested in donating a coat or making a financial donation to help this effort, just let me know.
