Children’s Coat Drive
Winter will be here before you know it. Even though it’s only here for a short period of time in South Mississippi, we want to make sure our little ones on the Coast are bundled up this season.
This is why the ‘Extend a Hand, Help a Friend’ organization will host a coat drive starting September 23rd and ending on October 19th. You can drop off any new or gently used coats at the Hair Boutique on 1903 31st Avenue.
In order to help more people in the community, there will be an email address in the upcoming weeks where those in desperate need of coats can seek assistance. Jeffrey Hulum III with ‘Extend a Hand, Help a Friend,’ said, “Looking for any coat sizes, from infant to adult size coats. They can be new or gently used coats. That’s some of the things we are looking for at this time.”
Hulum III tells News 25 this is just another way of building a strong community by helping those in need.
