Each year WCAC 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. More than just a new coat, the program is intended to alleviate the burden of purchasing a new coat for our vulnerable families, while preventing children from getting sick, missing school and thus causing parents to miss work or school themselves. We are most grateful for the strong community and corporate support we receive each year for this program.
Thank you to our 2018 Coat Drive Sponsors:
National Grid, MAPFRE Insurance, Commerce Bank a division of Berkshire Bank, GloboForce, TJX Companies, AllCom Credit Union and Joy Guru Humanitarian Services. Additional support provided by 12th Annual Burlington, Delivering Good & Good Morning America Warm Coats & Warm Hearts Coat Drive.
