The Winter Coat Project: The warmest of gestures

Chaplaincy Services gives away 500+ winter coats to students in need every year

By Neale McDevitt - for the McGill Reporter

Like war and childbirth, a Montreal winter cannot be adequately described with mere words. It is a physical test that defies intellectualization. You have to live it to really understand it. And “live it” might be a little optimistic – “survive it” is probably more apropos.
