Langley coat drive shares warmth of the holiday season

Langley School District Foundation and Encompass Support Services Society host new coat campaign

Local community groups have teamed up to share some of the warmth of the holiday season with a new coat drive.

Behind it are the Langley School District Foundation and Encompass Support Services Society.

Langley families in need can receive new coats this winter. Coats are needed in a range of sizes from XXS to XXL, infants, children, youth and adults.

Organizers are asking the public to consider giving to this drive to help ensure more people in the community are warm and dry this winter.

The public can donate winter coats or money which will be used to buy coats in needed sizes.
