The Trinity Council 5467 4th annual Coats for Kids in 2018 set another record. This year the council distributed a record 468 new boys and girls winter coats to eighteen schools, churches and service organizations in the area, an increase from sixteen in 2017. In the three previous years, the council distributed 36, 84 and 264 coats.
Bob Ellis, chairman, noted, “The program could not have been successful without the financial support of the parishioners, the Social Action Committee, the Ladies Guild, Trinity Council 5467 and its members, PEZ Candy, Inc., DiGennaro Service, Lock Stock & Barrel and Laticrete International in Bethany and A-1 Toyota in New Haven.”
The council meets on the third Tuesday of each month at Our Lady of the Assumption in the Mother Church on Litchfield Turnpike in Woodbridge. For information about Trinity Council, you may call 203-242-0076.
