Some were new to the activity, and others (okay, they're kids) have been doing it half their lives.

A small group had gathered around a car in the parking lot. A parishioner from St. Pius was handing out coats to the diners. He said it was a grass-roots effort started by church members; they collect and pass out 5-10 coats a week. (By the way, distributing used cold-weather gear is the primary mission of some charities.)
We polished off the apple cider and closed up. There were celebrations to attend that night, but nothing more important than this.
