Coat drive to benefit The Elizabeth Coalition to house the homeless Oct. 20 - Nov. 3 at Westfield Memorial Library.

The coalition, through its many programs, provides assistance to hundreds of men, women and children who are homeless. Please drop off your clean, gently used coats during library hours.

There is a significant need for children’s (ages 5-12) coats, though all donations are appreciated! Children’s coats will go to transitional housing and after-school programs for homeless youth. Adult coats are provided to Operation Warm Heart.
