LAFAYETTE, NJ  - Pass It Along began the Annual Note in a Coat Drive on October 1, 2019, and will continue until November 11, 2019.

Originating in 2001, Note in a Coat provides local families in need with proper winter accessories for the upcoming season. We encourage all to donate any unwanted, gently used winter coats and accessories to bring warmth to our neighborhood in need. Children’s coats and accessories are especially needed. 

We encourage all to include a small note with any donation, adding a personal touch to somebody’s new coat.
