Our annual coat drive is taking place Nov 30 to Dec 4 right after Thanksgiving. Please solicit friends, family and neighbors to join us in supporting our drive and sharing a bounty of surplus coats with those in need. Please donate new or gently used coats and jackets of all sizes (clean and in good repair only) to the collection bins located just inside the front doors of PS 321’s main building. St. Mary’s Episcopal Church will distribute donations to those in need all over Brooklyn. Last donations will be accepted immediately following Dec 4 Family Friday. To volunteer sorting and bagging donations that week, please contact Francesca Pope.
