It all started with a milestone birthday celebration a few years back. Carolyn Langill was reflecting on her life and the pending milestone. An avid volunteer and philanthropist, Carolyn has been involved in an array of community initiatives as a volunteer and donor, including New Circles and the Heart to Hand program, a project that has also provided support to our clients.
Carolyn decided to host a birthday party. The catch? Every guest was to bring a coat and/or gently used clothing for New Circles. Cocktails for Coats was born…the rest is history.
Carolyn has continued with this initiative, collecting more and more each year. With a network of about 80 people, Carolyn reached a new record this year, collecting 248 coats and other clothing donations, filling 2 U-haul vans and three cars! She has now contributed over 1400 coats to New Circles through this wonderful event.
