The goal is to collect and then pass out winter coats which are donated to senior citizens in need throughout the county.

To date, the Monroe County Coats for Seniors program has collected over 10,000 coats. 

"We want to make sure that all of our seniors remain safe, healthy, and protected from the winter elements," said Dinolfo. "Certainly a winter coat is a necessity when you live in upstate New York and Rochester as well."

The program accepts new and gently-used adult coats.
