MCC collecting coats for those in need

For many, winter can be a particularly difficult time of year. To help those in the Annapolis community who struggle to stay warm, the Maryland Catholic Conference has been collecting clean, new and gently used coats as part of a drive it is calling Coats Until Crossover. 

Crossover is a deadline in Maryland when all bills must pass out of the originating chamber and crossover to the opposite chamber. This session, Crossover is March 18. From now until Crossover, the Conference has a blue box on its porch where it will collect coats. 

"Whether you are tidying up or refreshing your wardrobe, please consider donating your coats and help bring joy to those who struggle to stay warm, " said Jennifer Briemann, executive director of the Conference. 

All coats will be donated to the Arundel House of Hope on a rolling basis. 

Don't forget that Spring often requires a lighter-weight jacket to stay comfortable. Clean coats and jackets of all weights are welcome.
