American Legion Annual Coat Drive

Dear Editor:

American legion Bayonne Post 19 annual coat and drive will be held from November 11th thru November 30th. We are hoping to beat last year’s number where over 400 coats were donated to Homeless Veterans and our school children. All coats and can be dropped off at the Post 683 Broadway between 31st and 32nd streets next to Cablevision parking lot, Elbaum’s located at 182 Broadway or Senerchia’s Meat & Deli, located at 762 Broadway or BCB bank at various locations throughout Bayonne.

Again this year we are assisting Homeless Veterans and Veterans who can not afford coats for the winter thru the Hudson County VA clinic in Jersey City and Community Hope, they are the largest most comprehensive program for homeless Veterans in New Jersey, here they can house up to 95 Veterans located at the Lyons Veterans Administration facility.

We were also asking for children’s coats for the children in the Bayonne school system, some of whom may not have a coat to protect them during the coming winter months.

We look forward to another great event where support from the citizens of Bayonne, Veterans and businesses community far surpassed our goals and helped make last year’s coat drive such a success where we were able to assist more of our homeless Veterans and school children.

For more information please feel free to contact Mike Wilson at American Legion Bayonne Post 19 at 201-858-9349.
