Winter Coat Exchange

For the 20th time, Rhode Islanders from all walks of life will gather at locations statewide for the Winter Coat Exchange. In Newport, the distribution site will be St. Paul’s United Methodist Church. Coats will be given away and collected Nov. 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For those taking coats, there will be no questions asked and no paperwork needed.

Coats not distributed at the Providence site on the Friday after Thanksgiving will be sent by volunteers to the Standing Rock Reservation. Volunteers and donors can contact Ralph Petrarca at 401-846- 0966 or stpaulnpt@gmail.com.
