"The stats are in, just in time for the first December edition of the West Essex Tribune. The Livingston Coat Drive has donated some 714 coats, along with 145 men’s suits, sport jackets and dress slacks in 11 deliveries, totaling 859 gently used and new garments," announced Jeff Friedman, Coat Drive founder and coordinator. Friedman, known affectionately as "the Coat Guy," noted that the count does not include shirts and ties.
The new effort in collecting men's business attire has been very successful, Friedman added, explaining that the clothes help recipients make a good impression at job interviews. Just recently, 84 men's suits were delivered to the North Reformed Church in Newark.
"At this time last year, the total stood at 523 coats in five deliveries," Friedman said. "We were not 'officially' handling men's business attire last season. The reality was another story. Many fine suits and men's dress items passed through our hands on their way to others."
