A long-familiar sight on the weekend before Thanksgiving, John Dodge collected coats to benefit Boston’s St. Francis House shelter for more than 30 years


The 36th Annual John Dodge Coat Drive will have to wait until 2021.

St. Francis House is not able to accept used clothing items this year due to the pandemic, but that does not mean the need is any less than ever.

In the meantime, those who would like to help can make a direct gift at the St. Francis House website or through the St. Francis House Amazon Wishlist. As they explain on their website at your gift has the power to rebuild lives.

“We look forward to next year’s coat drive,”  said the family crew that has kept the drive alive since John’s passing, “and we wish all Bedford’s families well.”
