Coat Drive

The Hamilton Volunteer Rescue Squad held a very successful Coat Drive on Saturday, October 25. Members of the community donated hundreds of new or very lightly used coats that the HVRS collected in support of Mobile Hope. Mobile Hope is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity, and its mission is to assist Loudoun citizens in need, with a special focus on helping children and young adults. The organization provides everyday items that many of us take for granted: food, clothing, hygiene articles, and others.

The event went the entire day, and our dedicated volunteers ensured that it ran smoothly. Members of the Hamilton Fire Department also assisted throughout the day. With such a worthy cause, we are delighted and grateful for the exceptionally generous support from the public.
