Two Hundred and Thirty – Five
That is the number of coats we delivered today to the New York Cares coat drive. I was shooting for more. But I am always shooting for more.
Story of my life.
Fewer coats this year. Fewer participants. But as always those who participated really stepped up to the proverbial plate.
It was nine people and me.
We delivered 18 actual coats and the rest were purchased with donations.
So a huge Thank You to Paul Williams, Nancy Clausen, Barbara Tannenbaum, Ellen Silverman, Linda Scull, Lisa Valentino, Maryanne Ziegler, Gregg S. and the Robert & Carol Jackson Foundation for your generous donations and big hearts! And a thank you to Linda Thompson for donating three coats to her local shelter.
And very importantly – every year I could not do this without the help of Silas Olivera!!!
And with that, I wish you all a Very Happy Holiday whatever you celebrate. And you will be hearing from me before the new year!
