Letter: Coat giveaway helps over 500 in Detroit Lakes
Thanks to the entire Detroit Lakes community for making the 2017 Coat Give Away a wonderful success. The event took place at Trinity Lutheran Church on Oct. 7. A new record of 522 adults, teens and children received coats, boots and additional clothing to prepare themselves for the winter that is soon upon us.
The church halls were filled with smiles, laughter and appreciation for all that participated. We offer special thanks to Lakeshirts for their contribution of sweatshirts for the event. Also, thanks to Thrivent for additional financial support. May we all share in God's bountiful blessings this coming winter season.—Charles Jensvold, Detroit Lakes
