Annual Coat Drive for Kids

Each year Worcester Community Action Council, Inc. undertakes a Coat Drive in order to provide new winter coats to all of the children enrolled in the agency’s Early Head Start, Head Start, and Healthy Families of Southern Worcester County programs, as well as for the children of the teen parents enrolled in the agency’s Job & Education Center (JEC). More than just a new coat, the program seeks to alleviate the burden of purchasing a new coat for our vulnerable families, while also preventing children from getting sick, missing school and thus causing parents to miss work or school themselves. Read more here.
