Herbert Keith provides information on the gift of coats and clothing.

The L’Ouverture Historical Center Coat and Clothes Giveaway is from noon to 4 p.m. both Friday and Saturday, Nov. 18-19, at the Ridgecrest Community Center, 1500 E. Choctaw Ave.

2 Who can participate?

It is for anyone, any race, age or size. There are no income guidelines or anything to fill out. Everything is free. We have everything from plus sizes to kids. We’ll have hot dogs and sodas while they last.

3 How can those who participate make a selection?

They can try on a coat and select what they like.

4 How did the coats become available for the raffle?

Most of the coats and clothes were donated by individuals and are second-hand, but in good condition. Some of the coats and clothing were previously owned but still have tags and were never worn. We have been working on the renovation of the old L’Ouverture School and have had a lot of help, including the McAlester Buffaloes soccer team and the McAlester Police Department. I wanted to give back to the community

It is close to Hunter Park and the historic center of L’Ouverture, formerly the L’Ouverture School. As you head east on Chickasaw to the apartment complex, the Ridgecrest Community Center is the first building on the south side of the street.
