Help keep our community warm this winter. It'll warm your heart.

The 2014 Coats of Caring distribution will be held on Saturday, Oct. 25 at Park Place Community Center, 802 E. 5th Street from 8 to 11 a.m.

Led by Community Hospital Anderson, this community-wide initiative has been keeping Madison County warm since 2001. Last year this program provided winter coats more than 1000 residents of Madison County. Unfortunately, we anticipate that the need will again be great but you can help.

Gently worn or new coats along with new hats and mittens can be dropped off at Community Hospital Anderson, WQME, the Herald Bulletin or any of the Bestway Cleaners locations. Coats will then be distributed to families in need at Park Place Community Center on Saturday, Oct. 25 from 8 to11 a.m.

Community Anderson's mission extends beyond providing quality health care to the people in our community, to offering support and compassion for their overall well-being. We feel that Coats of Caring does just that. If you would like more information you may contact the Community Relations department at 765-298-5128.
