Successful Coat Drive: Thank You!

Dear Crocker Farm Families, This year's coat drive was a great success once again. Thank you all for your generous donations, which included many top brands and almost-new clothes. A big shout-out to our volunteers who set up and ran the "store."  This is a wonderful Crocker Farm tradition, which we hope to continue for many years. If any families are still looking for warm winter gear, the coat share continues at Fort River the first week of December and at Wildwood and the ARPS Family Center through mid-December (while supplies last). Stay warm!
