MANCHESTER, NH – Temperatures have been dropping, and winter is just around the corner. It’s that time of year – particularly with Thanksgiving just days away – when many people from the community seek out ways to help those in need.

Jennifer Skilton of Manchester is one of those people. She has been working tirelessly to organize a coat exchange as part of The Manchester Winter Wear Exchange Project. With the help of partners, including Brookside Congregational Church, Savers, and several others, Skilton has planned an event for Sunday Nov. 19 at Victory Park (located across from the Manchester City Library) between Pine and Chestnut streets.
 
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., anyone is welcome to come by to pick out some winter wear from the rack, or drop off a donation that might be just what someone else needs.
 
If you have clean coats, heavy sweaters, hats, gloves or any other gently-used winter wear to donate, please do. Clean adult and children’s winter wear items of all sizes are gratefully accepted.

The mission is simply to provide a worthwhile chance for the free exchange of still useful winter wear.
The vision: A stronger community more effectively sharing its resources.
