Coats for Kids project warms up Henry County community

By HEATHER BAUGHMAN Staff Writer Published:

NAPOLEON What started as a nagging feeling to do something to help the community has turned into an annual project that provides warmth and comfort to hundreds of people every year. Michele Hall and her fellow members of Christ United Methodist Church, Glenwood Avenue, are gearing up for another Coats for Kids project to collect and distribute new and good used coats to adults and children in the community who are in need of winter warmth. Collection for the project will take place all day Oct. 31, and Nov. 1, at Chief Supermarket and Wal-Mart in Napoleon, with distribution taking place a week later at the church on Nov. 8, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
