A friend/co-host/organizer put this together for the coat-drive.
Hope you can make it, or support one in your local area.
We sat (by the fireplace after work, each with a glass of Scotch), and agreed that we wanted little to do with raising money that would only feed administratively top-heavy "charities". A coat drive was his idea, and I was immediately onboard. I've bitched about this before, I know. 100% of coat donations will be made available to those who need them. If you haven't worn it in two season, you likely won't miss it.
