You probably saw the forecast for Rochester, Minnesota on Halloween. If you missed it, you can see it here but just know, it is going to leave you with extremely frozen fingers by the end of all the trick-or-treating. It's not a huge deal for most of us because we've got Cuddle-duds, long underwear, gloves, scarfs, hats, and winter coats that we can throw on as we get cold. That is, unless your child has outgrown their winter gear. FYI, it is time to have your kids try those on because at least 70% of kids grow so much that they need new winter gear.
Unfortunately, that's not the case for everyone in our community and if you've got any extra winter gear, I'm wondering if you could drop it off this weekend to share the warmth?
Share the Warmth Annual Coat Drive Happening Saturday, October 30th in Rochester, Minnesota
This Saturday, October 30th, drive over to Charlie's Eatery & Pub North and drop off any new or slightly used winter gear for those in our community who could use some extra items to stay warm this winter. The Rochester Elks Lodge #1091 is helping collect items from 9 am until 5 pm for those in our community that are homeless, military vets, and kids in need. The items will be distributed by Catholic Charities and Rochester Community Warming Shelter.
