Kessler Foundation sponsored a coat drive for BFL’s Freedom House Emergency Shelter, donating warm coats to the families at the facility.

Several hundred coats were received, said Occupational Therapy Coordinator Patricia Motus, who added that “It was amazing. Residents came and everyone found a coat that fit them perfectly. It looked like the coats were made for them.”

Freedom House is nationally recognized as the first fully accessible emergency shelter for disabled victims of domestic violence and their families. Kessler Foundation is a public charity dedicated to improving the lives of people with physical and cognitive disabilities caused by stroke, multiple sclerosis, injuries to the brain and spinal cord, and other chronic conditions.
