COATS for COTS

Burlington's Committee on Temporary Shelter (COTS) is looking for donations of winter coats to help its clientele of homeless Vermonters prepare for the cold weather.

VHFA's Socially Responsible Committee has started a campaign to encourage employees to purge their closets of unneeded coats and jackets to donate to the cause.

If you have new or gently-worn winter coats you'd like to donate, contact COTS Director of Development Kim Borsavage at kimb@cotsonline.org or 802.864.7402 x107.
