The Junior League of Summit's Annual Coat Event will be held October 6-7 at Calvary Episcopal Church.

SUMMIT, NJ - The Junior League of Summit Thrift Shop’s Annual Coat Event will take place October 6 - 7 at Parish Hall within Calvary Church.

The event features gently used adult and children’s winter coats and accessories and, according to League member and Thrift Shop Chair, Summit's Carly Spary, the Coat Event this year's Coat Event will feature one of the largest collections of coats in recent Shop history.  “We have a huge selection of coats for men, women and children.  We are thrilled at the options we have to offer our shoppers.”

The Coat Event -- which will run from 9:30 a.m. - 8 p.m. on October 6 and 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. the following day -- epitomizes the dual community service role that the Thrift Shop serves, offering critical and necessary clothing at deep discounts, making it affordable to those in need, while also generating monies from those sales that fund the JLS’s other philanthropic endeavors.

“I can think of little that could be more important than ensuring that families have winter coats to keep them warm," said League President Michelle DeMuth. "We sincerely appreciate the donations of our members and the local community, enabling us to provide our neighbors with coats and winter boots, gloves and scarves at an affordable price point."

The Thrift Shop itself will remain open for its regular hours throughout the Coat Event, continuing to offer customers the opportunity to purchase discounted clothing and shoes for men, women and children and housewares.
