Hudson coat drive helps local people in need stay warmHudson – The need has never been greater, and it has never been easier to make a difference in your community. In Hudson, there is an opportunity to make sure that no one goes without such a basic necessity as a coat this winter.

Participants of the Boys & Girls Clubs” “Smart Girls” program at the Argeo R. Cellucci Jr. Clubhouse are collecting clean gently used coats and jackets as part of the “One Warm Coat” community service project. Coats of all shapes and sizes are welcome.

One Warm Coat is dedicated to distributing reusable coats, free of charge, directly to local children and adults. The program is an easy way families can pass along coats and jackets that they no longer need.

Smart Girls has made donating a coat simple. Coats and jackets can be taken to the Argeo R. Cellucci Jr. Clubhouse in Hudson through Friday, Dec. 16. Then Smart Girls will take care of the rest. All donated coats will be given to the Willis Center for distribution to local people in need.

Sherri Wood is the president and national coordinator for One Warm Coat.

“More people than ever need help these days,” she said. “I am proud of the thousands of coat drive organizers whose creativity and generosity of spirit have made helping people so easy, and who are making a real difference in their own communities.”

One Warm Coat is a national nonprofit organization that supports and encourages coat drives. It helps individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country collect coats and deliver them to local agencies that distribute the coats free to people in need. More than one million coats have been provided to those in need at no cost since its inception in 1992.
