Share the Warmth Coat Program in New Haven

The winter months are right around the corner and the New Haven Food Bank is sponsoring the “Share the Warmth Program” in New Haven. Program volunteers are reaching out to all residents for donations of gently used winter coats so they can be distributed to those in need. All winter coats will be offered again this year at no charge to food bank families who need assistance. Winter coats are sought from area donors each fall to replenish the supply in an effort to share the warmth in the community. Coats are now being collected through the end of winter. Winter coats of all sizes are needed – from infant sizes to adult size 5x. The Food Bank is asking that all donated coats have working zippers, buttons, or snaps.

Donations may be taken to the following locations:
• 3Rivers Credit Union
• Chase Bank (New Haven & Georgetown locations)
• Emanuel Lutheran Church
• IAB (New Haven branch)
• Martini Lutheran Church
• New Haven City Hall

This program was very successful last year as more than 200 winter coats were given to New Haven area residents through the New Haven Food Bank. The Food Bank will allow residents to select one coat of their choice beginning November 1st. Coats will be available for distribution each Tuesday through the end of February from 9:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. at Emanuel Lutheran Church, located at 800 Green Street in New Haven. For more information, please contact Emanuel Lutheran Church at 749-2163 or Food Bank Representative, Tom Kneller at 749-0895.
