It’s a comfort we sometimes take for granted. The weather turns colder, so we reach into the closet for our trusty winter coat, hat and gloves. Imagine for a moment if that closet were empty. And imagine you were reaching not for your own coat, but a coat for your kids.
That’s a thought the team at Grand Lodge simply couldn’t bear, which is why they purchased and donated coats this year to Bubba’s Closet. It’s an annual coat giveaway for local kids, sponsored by Lincoln Public Schools.
“All of us have a special place in our hearts for children,” said Grand Lodge executive director Lisa Henning. “Knowing that we’re making a small difference for some area kids who might otherwise not have coats this winter is what this season is all about.”
