Goodwill Easterseals delivers coats to homeless in Escambia County

IMG_1507On Friday, November 6th,  Goodwill Easterseals had an opportunity to donate over 250 coats to the Alfred-Washburn Center in Escambia County, Florida. The Alfred-Washburn Center is a ministry of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul serving the homeless and poorer members of our community. The Center provides food, showers, laundry facilities, clothing and identification cards for the homeless. They have individual shower rooms and washing machines/dryers for IMG_1515laundry.
All homeless and poorer members of our community are welcome and services are provided free of charge for any who come to the center with the goal of providing basic human dignity. Many coats were given out although it was 85°. The individuals that received coats were thankful and appreciative, and thanked us for helping with their mission of helping the homIMG_1504eless and the poorer members of the community. We are honored to be part of the mission of the Alfred-Washburn Center and friends of the communities in which we serve.
