Coat Drive

The Coat Program began in 2005 on a snowy Saturday distribution. BOLO volunteers noticed significant numbers of women and children came to receive food with broken zippers or in some cases, no coats at all. Very few wore hats or gloves. An appeal was made to the church and community to check their closets for clean, gently used extras or to donate new ones. This is a small, inexpensive, but practical program.
