Hopkins Health & Wellness partners with Great Coat Giveaway in Pequot Lakes area

Hopkins Health & Wellness in Pequot Lakes has partnered with the Great Coat Giveaway to help collect used winter coats for people in need.

The Great Coat Giveaway started in 2009 and collected more than 500 coats that were given to families in need in the Motley/Staples area. This outreach program is coordinated through CARE Ministries. CARE stands for Compassion of Christ, Accountability, Respect and Ecumenical.

The ministry is handing out coats as fast as it can collect them again this year. Hopkins Health & Wellness and Snap Fitness are local drop-off sites for coats in the Pequot Lakes area.

As a thank you for your coat, please ask for a Snap Studio class pass. You can use it to enjoy Yoga, Pilates, Zumba or Power Pump classes at Snap Fitness.
