Georgetown girls Maggie and Avery Bare hosted their third coat drive this winter, donating 244 coats to Catholic Charites’ most vulnerable neighbors. Maggie, who is 11 years old, and Avery, age 8, started this annual tradition with the intention of giving back. Their efforts have made a huge impact for Catholic Charities clients.
So far this winter, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Wilmington has provided hundreds of coats and warm winter items to families and individuals throughout the region thanks to community organizations, businesses, individuals and groups.
In Georgetown, Catholic Charities has provided walk-in clients with winter coats, hats, gloves and blankets in an effort to help those in need stay warm.
Catholic Charities also accepts household items, working appliances and mattresses. Furniture, large appliances, and large donations can be scheduled for pickup by calling 302-764-2717. Cars and other vehicle donations are also welcome. For more information about the many ways to donate, go to www.cdow.org/charities.
