Coat and Boot Drive on Dec 21

from Greater Erie Alliance for Equality

Elaine Reed, Leah Manino, and Alex Sphon at Gem City Dinor on December 21 for Warm Coats and Boots Drive. 

On Monday, December 21, 2020, The Greater Erie Alliance, NW PA Pride, and NW Rural AIDS Alliance joined forces to hold a warm coat and boot drive to benefit individuals served by the Ryan White Program. The drop off site was hosted by the Gem City Dinor, 3545 West 12th Street in Erie. Owners Elaine Reed and Rich Hodges were happy to open their doors to host the coat/boot drive.

The Gem City Dinor graciously gave back to donors with vouchers for a free bowl of soup at their next visit.

The drive was successful due to the exceptional generosity of our community. Together, donors brought in about two hundred coats and dozens of boots. Other donations included warm hats/gloves and face masks.

These donations are distributed by the staff of NW PA Rural AIDS Alliance and significantly impact the recipients.
