Each year, through its “Buy 1 & We’ll Give 1” campaign, Macy’s donated 50,000 coats to an international charitable organization, Clothes4Souls, which has been distributing these coats across the country since last fall. Clothes4Souls reached out to Maryland Legal Aid to coordinate the distribution of 2,300 of these coats. This event marks the fourth year that Clothes4Souls has worked with Maryland Legal Aid and other community partners in Maryland to help those in need.
