The ECC “Coats, Gloves & Love” Clothing Drive came and went – without much participation. Ho hum. Bah hum bug. Despite the signage, advertising in the Elk Creek Express & elsewhere, few residents took part. Why is not clear.
However, the families who did participate – donated a heck of alot of winter gear – an estimated 10 children’s winter coats. Wow. Thank you! “Soon we will be deciding which Omaha organization needs these coats the most,” notes co-organizer Susan Stern.
Now, there’s still time to clean out your closets for Omaha’s less fortunate. We’ve extended the drop off dates to November 23rd. Please contact Susan at 212-7489, if you have gently worn coats, gloves, hats & scarves to donate. Or, bring them to 16508 Taylor Street.
