Wow GG, that's awfully sweet of you. Don't poop yourself out.

Lovely gesture, and a lot of work, GG!

I cleaned out the coat closet. We have a whole bunch of coats that were rarely worn, and in excellent shape. Sadly, we no longer have a consignment shop in town. I'm hesitant to just drop them off at Goodwill so they can profit from them, but since I want to get rid of them, it's probably what I'll do.

No coat drives in your area? Those coats got to those who need them free of charge.

These are adult coats. I don't have kids coats.

Maybe I'll check with some of the churches. DH and I both wear Talls.

Doesn't Goodwill use the money to pay the workers? That's how it was explained to me when I was kid.

What are you doing?

Goodwill sells for a profit. They do pay their workers minimum wage. The guy who runs Goodwill makes millions.

I agree, adults need coats too!

DH and I tag-teamed it hee hee! I sat at the table and chopped and minced, then gave him directions for cooking much of it. When I did the cooking, I took frequent breaks.

I think the experience of planning and cooking for 25 teachers a couple times a year for the last 10 years helped a lot!

Dawg, it would be so rewarding to personally give a coat to someone who's cold. There are ways that can be done. I don't know that it would be a safe thing to do by going to a skid row, but it sure sounds like great solution. Maybe your local connection to those great United Way cooks could give you some answers.
