Time and space couldn't stop the power of caring or the outpouring of donated coats sent from the Denver area to Christ's Table in Zanesville. Ron Rhodes' daughter Lisa went to Muskingum College before moving to Colorado. She says the people of the Muskingum Valley forever made an impression on her so she encouraged people in the semi-affluent area of Castle Rock, Colorado to donate old coats to people in the foothills of Appalachia. Rhodes joined together the New California United Presbyterian Church, the Jerome Township Fire Department outside of Marysville and Christ's Table. Now everyone helps collect and disperse coats. In the past five years, thousands of coats have been collected and donated to needy familes.
