Food, clothing giveaway set for Nov. 14

Posted October 31, 2017 at 6:04 pm

The Seventh Annual Zestos Coats For All is coming to the Hawarden Community Center along with the Hawarden Community Meal.

This will be a unique opportunity to enjoy a free homecooked meal, free take-home food, and free cold-weather clothing for all.

Zestos has been gathering new and gently used winter clothing all year long for this event. The Boy Scouts, Staples, Justice for All and several others have helped make this event possible.

The result is a massive supply of cold-weather gear made available free of charge for anyone that could use a little help. This includes coats, caps and stocking hats, gloves, boots, etc. These items include a wide variety of sizes.
