Leonidas AHEPA Chapter 77 Holds 2nd Annual Coat Drive

November 21, 2021

BINGHAMTON, NY – Members of AHEPA Leonidas Chapter 77 in Binghamton held their 2nd annual coat drive on November 16. This year’s coat drive was expanded from two schools to five total. Members of the chapter purchased brand new jackets to be distributed to each school. The schools that were a part of this year’s coat drive were MacArthur Elementary, Woodrow Wilson Elementary, Roosevelt Elementary, East Middle School, and George F. Johnson Elementary. To ensure coats went to those who needed it most, the chapter worked directly with school counselors to identify specific sizing needs. Last year’s total of forty-five coats was more than doubled. The chapter is pleased to announce they handed out over 150 new coats.

Also partnering with the Leonidas Chapter this year was Visions Federal Credit Union. Visions not only provided jackets, but there was also a donation of hats, gloves and socks that went to all four elementary level schools. The chapter would like to extend a special thanks to Visions for their generous donation to the annual coat drive. Members of the Leonidas Chapter look forward to growing this event year after year. No child should have to worry about being warm enough. “Our chapter will be here every November providing a little bit of warmth to students in our community,” said chapter President Chris Papastrat.
