WCAC wraps up annual coat drive
They say timing is everything, and for Worcester Community Action Council’s 10th annual coat drive for kids the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. The agency was able to deliver new winter coats to all of the children enrolled in the agency’s Head Start, Early Head Start and Healthy Families of Southern Worcester County, as well as provide for the children of teen parents enrolled in the agency’s Job & Education Center just as the first true frost of the season arrived this week.
Thanks to sizable in-kind donations from National Grid (211 coats), Commerce Bank (109 coats) and Avalon Marlborough (45 coats), coupled with corporate donations from Bay State Savings Bank ($2,000), DCU for Kids ($1,500), UniBank ($1,000) and the TJX Companies ($1,000), WCAC was able to distribute 451 new winter coats.
