Much love to Skeemonee for hosting and putting together his first Holiday Coat Drive. On Christmas morning from 10am until noon, less fortunate individuals and families showed up at the Friends of the Homeless Shelter, 112 N Independence Street in Kinston. They were able to pick out the coats of their choice and were also blessed with free food and drinks courtesy of Will’s Strictly Turkey.
