Coats of Care
on Oct 27, 2015
The Rotary Club of Moncton & West Riverview presented a $900.00 cheque to Visions United Church to support their COATS OF CARE project. They raised funds to purchase and deliver five (5) coats that convert into sleeping bags to every city in the Maritimes. The coats are made in Detroit by homeless women through a wonderful project called the EMPOWERMENTPLAN (google for details). The pilot project begins November 1st and will be monitored this winter to evaluate if the coats are suitable and useful during our famous “Canadian Winters”. This is a great example of doing good in the world and addressing the growing concerns of poverty in Canada.
