LCCAA has “Free Children’s Coats”


More than 2,000 Lorain County youngsters will be warm this winter thanks to LCCAA’s combination of multiple funding streams and partnerships.


For the sixth year, LCCAA has partnered with Lorain Metropolitan Housing Authority to provide coats to children in its complexes. All children in LCCAA Head Start families have also received coats. This year, that includes all home-based students.


“No one in the county should go without a coat if we can help it,” said Planning and Community Services Director Frank Prihoda, noting the total number of coats on hand at the start of distribution was 2,382.


Coats are now available to anyone in Lorain County living at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. You must go to www.lccaa.net/programs/operation_warm to complete a coat request. Proof of eligibility will also be required.


Funding comes from LCCAA’s regular Community Services Block Grant as well as the additional CSBG funding that was part of the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act). The agency also received grants from the Community Foundation of Lorain County and The Lorain Foundation.


“This year, in bad times, we will be able to help a lot of people and they can use their money for other bills,” Prihoda added.


All pickups will be contactless. No returns can be accepted so parents are encouraged to order the next size up to ensure the coats fit. Questions should be directed to Amy Steele at 440-204-3121 or asteele@lccaa.net.
