At this late date, I realize that I never posted photos of the coat delivery.  Before I forget, if you’re interested in the technical end of it, to include an explanation of the quality and safety features we designed into each coat. see Design of the Child’s Coat -Apparel Manufacturing Boot Camp, Fall 2015.

As I was; the packaging and inventory control ended up being more work than we imagined.

Carrying the coats in the door of the Nacimiento Community Foundation, we’re welcomed in English, Spanish, and Navajo.

Last but not least, here is our Apparel Manufacturing Boot Camp Project Manager (right) alongside Beth Hamilton, director of the Nacimiento Community Foundation. Beth is handling distribution of the coats we’ve donated.
