Youngstown Blue Coats has expanded its storage space to hold more donated items such as coats, boots, blankets, sleeping bags and tents, which they are making available to the homeless population as far as Pittsburgh.

“The need keeps growing and growing and the organization just keeps growing and I know the need is there. So as long as we can continue to serve the people, we will, ”said Patty Summers, President and CEO of Youngstown Blue Coats.

According to Summers, the organization plans to expand its service area this year to reach more homeless people.
