Gone within hours: Church’s coat giveaway shows increase in need

Email News Alerts

It may be a sign of the times that the free coats and clothing were gone in just a few hours at Trinity Lutheran’s annual winter clothing give-away event on Saturday.


“One thing we noticed this year as opposed to other years is that the need is so much greater,” said Charles Jensvold, who co-chairs the church’s Christian Outreach Committee.

“I’m not sure if it’s because we publicized it better, but my goodness … we had to call the radio stations to take it off the air.”
