RESOURCE: Richmond cafe offers 'Need One, Give One' Coat Rack For Community

From WWBT TV, Channel 12, Richmond VA

"One area cafe is helping to keep people warm with more than just coffee and tea.

There is now a coat rack outside of Brewer's Cafe in Richmond's Manchester neighborhood.

It is called the "Need One, Give One" coat rack, and the concept behind it is simple - if you need a coat, you grab one. If you want to give a coat, hang one up on the rack for someone else...."

".So, if you need a coat, or simply want to donate one, just head to the cafe located at 1125 Bainbridge Street....."
