During November and December, First Church collected and donated almost forty coats, of all shapes and sizes.

Here they are at Anton’s in Newton, ready to be cleaned and distributed.

For those unfamiliar with this project,  here is some background information:

“Coats for children and adults accepted at all Anton’s Cleaners, Enterprise Bank, and Jordan’s Furniture locations. In these hard economic times there are thousands of individuals in our very own community that are without a warm winter coat. Donated coats will be cleaned free of charge by Anton’s Cleaners. Once collected and cleaned, coats will be distributed through the Coats for Kids Distribution Partners network, which includes organizations such as Massachusetts Community Action Programs (MASSCAP), Salvation Army, Middlesex Human Service Agency, Women’s Lunch Place, BU Medical Center Outreach Van Project, Wish Project, Community Giving Tree, Mental Health Association of Greater Lowell, Strafford County Community Action, Catholic Charities, to name just a few.”
