    Annually the W7BA organizes donations for Joseph’s Coat, 1107 7th Street West. Joseph’s Coat is a free store serving its West 7th Street neighborhoods. When this annual campaign began in 2009, our vision was to get the West 7th business community involved to support this organization’s efforts to provide for those in need in our West End community. We have donated over 70W7BA-Donation--Drive-w0 brand new or gently used winter coats for adults and children, along with hundreds of pairs of boots, hats, mittens and gloves and hygienic items.
