We do not need to look very far to find a different world.
Today, there is a child who does not have a coat to keep her warm just 19 miles from the corner shop where I bought my daughter a new one for this year. And there are 15,000 more men, women and children just like that child in Bridgeport who will not have a coat either. That is almost as many people as we have in New Canaan. But, we can do something, and someone is. The Bridgeport Rescue Mission will give out over 15,000 coats next month for free to anyone who needs one. I have rounded up 7 in my house alone that I will be taking to them. I would love to have my car so full that I cannot see out of the back.
So as you sort out the winter clothes and buy new for the season, I'd love to donate any that you don't need anymore for you. They are in need of all sizes, adult and child. You can drop them off at to from now until November 1st. Let's share the warmth!
