More than a thousand coats along with winter gloves, hats and scarves were collected between January 4 and February 1 for the 2021 Brookhaven Town Youth Bureau’s INTERFACE Coat Drive. The items were donated by residents and have been distributed to churches, shelters, youth agencies, families, and veterans in need.
Town Supervisor Ed Romaine thanked residents for their donation to those in need, especially during the pandemic.
“You have truly made a difference in the lives of those in need in Brookhaven Town,” he said.
The Youth Bureau INTERFACE Program is a partnership between individuals, good corporate neighbors, and the Town of Brookhaven united in a common effort to provide help to Brookhaven’s less fortunate residents. It provides goods and services to those in need and addresses social issues.
“It is heartwarming to know how many people in Brookhaven Town are helped through the INTERFACE Program,” said Councilman Michael Loguercio, the Brookhaven Town Board Liaison to the Youth Bureau.
