Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — “Since this was the first year that we have ever collected clothing at satellite locations, we were unsure of what to expect in terms of quantity, and to our great surprise and pleasure, we ended up with more coats and clothes than all others years we’ve been running the drive combined,” said Corwin. “The community support has been fantastic.”

In less than a month, more than 1,000 coats, jackets, hats, gloves and other winter wear items that could provide warmth to over a few hundred families were donated.

“We were able to collect clothing for over 100 families last year, and we’ve more than quadrupled that this year,” Corwin said.
