OCTOBER COAT DRIVE A HUGE SUCCESS

OCTOBER COAT DRIVE A HUGE SUCCESS

Thank you, Windham!  Despite a slow start in the early weeks and the complexities of a holiday weekend, WSCW’s October 7th Coat Drive was a resounding success.  We collected 600 coats, 240 sweaters and 165 miscellaneous items for a total of 1005 items.  Special thanks to Shaw’s in Windham, Windham Co-op Kindergarten, and Nesmith Library for serving as collection sites again this year.

Each year, some donors understandably ask what happens all those items.  We send them to Windham’s Shepard’s Pantry, Sonshine Soup Kitchen in Derry, Renew in Derry, New Horizons in Manchester, and the Adult Learning Center in Nashua, for distribution to those in need.
