Nearly 1,000 Coats Delivered this Winter

Although this was not a very cold winter, the need for coats was much greater than in previous years.  So many of you donated coats this year, we thought you would like to know some of the numbers.  

Pile of Coats

 Last winter, Circle of Hope donated 533 coats to area shelters.  This year, we nearly doubled the deliveries with 974 coats going to shelters like Project Hope, Casa Nueva Vida, and Long Island Shelter in Boston.
