YWCA Darien/Norwalk in partnership with Wilton-based Riverbrook Regional YMCA served as “coat drive ambassadors” for One Warm Coat, a nonprofit that distributes coats nationwide to organizations that serve people in need. — an announcement from the YWCA Darien/Norwalk
The two local groups identified Person-To-Person in Norwalk as an organization in need of coats. Jarred Barnes, YMCA’s chief operations officer, picked up 50 coats, and YWCA Board Chair Aidan Welsh, picked up another 25, then delivered them to Person-To-Person in Norwalk. The coats are all either gently worn or new. The need was especially urgent this year.
