Each year the Burnaby Metrotown Rotary Club purchases new coats and collects used coats for children and youth in Burnaby.  Last year we delivered 1700 new coats to local Burnaby schools for children in need as well as over 2000 used coats to various non-profit organizations for individuals in their programs.  Our kickoff event was be held on September 9th at the Metrotown Public Library Square.
