Coats for Kids collection point is at Port City Craftsmen Show, Abba Shrine Auditorium, November 21-23
In the lobby of the Abba Shrine Auditorium, where the Port City Craftsmen Arts & Crafts Show is going on November 21-23, stands a tall box covered in red foil Christmas paper.
The poster on the front reads "Coats for Kids." And inside the hall, in a corner space surrounded by 100 booths of beautiful handmade arts and crafts, a visitor can find Lori Bosarge of Coden, chair of the Coats for Kids project.
Bosarge is gathering new and gently used coats, sweaters, and jackets for children whose parents cannot afford those items--and at this time of year, it gets pretty cold for a youngster waiting on a school buss.
If you attend the show and have in your closet a sweater or windbreaker you no longer need, consider dropping it in that barrel for Bosarge to distribute to a family December 4th.
