Tales from the Motherhood: Donating coats can teach importance of giving
My kids are both angling for new winter coats. Holly has grown disenchanted with the style of hers, which we just bought last year, but Noah has grown several inches since last winter and really needs one. Maybe he’ll want to give his old one to Craig Foltos, owner of Foltos’ Tonsorial Parlor in Batavia, as we just got his newsletter wherein he mentioned that he’s collecting gently used winter coats and clothing for friends who need them.
The last time Noah grew out of a coat, three years ago, he immediately told me to “Goodwill it.” I laughed, noting the contrast to a similar conversation we’d had years before, when he was just 5 and not quite ready to part with his little coat.
“Hey, Noah,” I’d asked him then, “what do you think about giving your old winter coat to someone who needs one?”
