The Scotch Plains Junior Woman's Club 2013 Coat Drive would like to thank the residents of Scotch Plains and Fanwood for their generosity. With their help, we were able to donate over 200 coats to local citizens in need. Mens, Womens, and Childrens coats were distributed to The Salvation Army in Plainfield, St. Mary's Parish in Plainfield, Westfield Presbyterian Church who distributed to the Food Pantry in Elizabeth, and Mt. Carmel Guild in Cranford. The Club would also like to thank the Scotch Plains Library as well as the JCC for allowing us to use their facilities as collection sites.
