Maryland Legal Aid distributes free coats and legal services to Maryland residents at local clinics.
Along with Clothes4Souls, Macy’s, and community volunteers, Maryland Legal Aid has been distributing brand new coats donated by Macy’s, to children and adults in need at events throughout Maryland. During distribution events, volunteer attorneys also provide free, brief legal services to financially eligible adults. The events, called Coats and Clinics aim to give away free coats and provide legal services.
Amy Petkovsek, Deputy Chief Counsel of Maryland Legal Aid describes how Maryland Legal Aid distributes 3,000 new coats at events across Maryland. Legal services are also available at the Coat distribution events to low-income, and marginalized individuals.
