COAT DRIVE for those in need accepting donations of winter wear

Start: Dec. 18, 2016, 10 a.m.

End: Dec. 18, 2016, 5 p.m.

Event at West End Gallery and Tattoo Studio

I have a friend, Raymond. I was having a hard day, and he MADE me a little xmas tree with lights. As a gift. He is homeless, and has very little, but has so much love to give. I asked my FB friends if maybe they had a coat or hat to keep my friend warm. The outpouring of donations was incredible. New and used coats, hats, hand made scarves, socks, food gift cards came to the shop the days after the post!! I thought there's enough to share with others in need. We could use more. So I'm asking for donations, of that coat you never wear, or a new pack of socks, ANYTHING!! I will be setting up a "shop" so we can warm the cold. I will be putting up flyers in the parks, and other areas like it to let people know about the event. I will be accepting everything at West End until the day of. I would be grateful for any and all help and anything you can think of to support. Please share this!! What started out as a coat for my friend began a movement and I am so grateful <3 thank you so very much!
