Our friend Annie, of ABPH Art, shared this story: “Not long after I delivered the first batch of coats (donated to the Highland Thrift Shop) Regina Holiday started gifting me with stories. A gentleman came and got a coat who had not had a winter coat in FOUR YEARS. A very poor family, three generations of women with multiple medical conditions picked up five coats. One is cold all the time so she took the heaviest one to wear in the house. When I finished crying I asked if I should spend more of the money on coats. The answer was yes. So I sat down and ordered 20 more coats. (If you want to see what winter is like here I just posted a video in my story.) Today I delivered the last of them along with a little over $1000 worth of non-perishable food. Thank you for being the light.
86 new coats. 5 gently used coats. $1000 worth of non-perishable food. 125 people. $6380.”
