Editorial: Coats for Caring program always a worthy endeavor

(Continued)

Residents can still drop off gently-used winter coats (no light-weight jackets) in a collection bin in Community Hospital’s front lobby on the last Friday of every month, or they can send check donations to Community Hospital Anderson Foundation, 1515 N. Madison Ave, Anderson, IN 46011.

Other programs are also in place to help Madison County residents. Saturday’s Operation Weatherization, for example, sent crews of United Way volunteers to help 85 low-income families get their homes ready for winter. Simple things like putting plastic sheets over windows, caulking cracks, adding water heater blankets and providing energy-efficient light bulbs.

The needs will increase as the weather worsens. Your single act of giving a coat, food, utility assistance, or volunteering time will go a long way to help.
