2nd annual David Josiah Lawson Coat Drive & 20 month Vigil brings warmth to the community


ARCATA, Ca. (KIEM) – Today, the Arcata community once again showed their support for David Josiah Lawson and his family. Lawson was murdered back in 2017, during a college party, the investigation of his death is still on going.

But the community carries his kindness and compassion for people with today’s winter coat drive. Josiah’s mother, Charmaine Lawson say’s all these coats, blankets and socks were a donation and should be given to people who need them the most.
