Winter Coats for a Warm Winter - Yad Eliezer

What is the best buy when it is 95 degrees outside?!
The heat is on, but it won't last forever. We know that winter is around the corner, and with it freezing temperatures that can chill the bones. Children whose parents don't have the means to keep the heat on, or to purchase warm clothing are at risk of illness in the inclement weather. Low income families are often able to purchase cheap second hand clothing, but it is rare to find a quality winter coat in good condition in second hand stores.
In recent years Yad Eliezer has been distributing thousands of warm, top quality winter coats to children of low income families. The thank you letters that we have gotten, describing children wearing their coats 24 hours a day so that they can sleep comfortably through the night in their unheated homes have made it clear that these coats are an essential item for the families that receive them.
