The Maplewood Police Department has supplied hundreds with warm gear for the winter through the Officer Mike Open Gym Coat Drive. The drive culminated tonight at Columbia High School but Maplewood Deputy Mayor Frank McGehee said that the police will continue to distribute the collected goods through its network of community partners including the Greater Essex County Chapter of Jack & Jill of America.

McGehee noted that the coat drive was initially scheduled for November but was canceled due to the sudden onslaught of Winter Storm Avery.
