Beachwood Sophomore Collects 100+ coats!

We’re ringing in the New Year, but looking back with gratitude on the generosity of our supporters in 2017.

The young lady pictured below, Lena Leland, a sophomore at Beachwood High School, initiated a coat drive for us and collected more than 100 coats!

She came up with the idea for the project herself, created a flyer for neighborhood distribution, and used social media to promote her drive to more families. Afterward, she devoted two weekends to drive around to collect coats, making 15 stops alone on the last day.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
