Salvation Army gets 1,000 coats for Brad Edwards Warmth 4 Winter just this week
OKLAHOMA CITY – The generosity of Oklahomans is overflowing at the Salvation Army thanks to the South Oklahoma City Rotary Club.
Friday the group dropped off about 60 bags of coats they collected over the last few weeks for the Brad Edwards Warmth 4 Winter program; that’s about 1,000 coats.
Without such a willing and helpful community of volunteers like the South OKC Rotary, the Brad Edwards Warmth 4 Winter coat drive would not be able to help keep so many Oklahomans warm each winter.
The Salvation Army said it is so thankful to have so many helping hands this year.
“I know it has been a really cold winter and we have been so grateful to the community to be able to provide these warm coats and mittens and gloves to people as they came in to our warming centers or just around Christmas time to families,” Jeanean South said, Salvation Army director of development.
We still have a few weeks of winter to go and there are still Oklahomans who need help staying warm.
