Coats for Greensboro & New York
If you wish to donate coats for next year’s Coats for Greensboro & New York coat distributions, please place your donations in the designated bins at the Welcome Centers. Also, if you wish to make a monetary donation so coats may be purchased for next year, please designate your offering envelope “Coats for Greensboro & New York.” What is a coat? A coat is something that is heavy enough to keep someone warm in freezing cold temperatures in Greensboro or New York. A coat is not a hoodie or sweatshirt. It should be clean, in good condition, and something you would wear. For more information, please contact Jim or Wilma Morgan.
