posted 11/10/14 -- LCCAA Partners with LMHA to Keep Residents Warm 

Lorain County Community Action Agency (LCCAA) announced its partnership with Lorain Metropolitan Housing Authority (LMHA) this holiday season to give coats to kids through the Operation Warm program.

“A brand new coat gives a child confidence to play more, learn more, and do more.” said Jackie Boehnlein, LCCAA President and CEO. “We want to help families keep their children warm and healthy this holiday season."

Through the Operation Warm Program, LCCAA was able to purchase winter coats for young children up to age 18. Community Services Block Grant dollars purchased the coats in sizes 3T to adult large.

The coats will be distributed at LCCAA’s Project Warm Event taking place on November 12 at Oberlin Homes; November 14 at Southside Gardens; November 20 at Westview Terrace/Leavitt; and November 21 at Wilkes Villa. The events will take place at each LMHA complexes between the hours of 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

Residents may contact Evelisse Atkinson, LMHA Resident Program Coordinator, at 440-288-7428 for information on the program.
