The Aroostook Agency on Aging kicked-off the Coats for Seniors program on November 1st at the Stephen M. Farnham Gathering Place on Davis Street in Presque Isle.

The agency will be collecting and distributing adult winter coats for Aroostook older adults throughout November. Giving and receiving is easy; drop a clean, gently used coat off or pick one up from the coat rack near the front door of the building.
