Coats for Chester: Supports regional soccer organizations in their efforts to provide warmth to 3 shelters in the City of Chester. Coats that are clean and have wearable life for both children and adults would be greatly appreciated. Clean out your closets and bring in a coat you no longer need. It will keep someone warm this winter!
Move for Hunger: Works directly with moving companies around the country to donate food to local food banks. Transferee’s donate non perishable food items on the day of their move. You can provide a monetary contribution to this worthwhile charity during the meeting if you would like.
