Read All About It
“I delivered coats to a foster home. One boy had to be about 13 but very small for his age. When I gave him the coat, he asked if it was it his to keep. He said ‘No one ever gave me anything new before.’ He hugged me tightly. ”
-Jefe Society, Mid-Atlantic, United States

Thank you!

YOU made it possible for the 3 millionth coat to be delivered this winter.
