Middlesex Lions Club and Anton's Cleaners "Coats for Kids" Drive
Anton's Cleaners has kicked off its 19th Annual "Coats for Kids" winter coat drive. The coat drive will run until January 11, 2014. This drive can help students earn Y.E.S. (Youth Engaged in Service) and community volunteer hours. For every 10 coats a student collects they can receive 2 volunteer hours. Maryann Chorlton has offered to pick up collected coats; you may reach her by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 781-935-5629.
There will also be collection boxes located at the Boys and Girls Club of Woburn, the Woburn Skating Rink, Woburn City Hall Rotunda, and more locations to come. Anton's Cleaners "Coats for Kids" collection has one simple goal- to help individuals who otherwise wouldn't be able to keep themselves and family members warm. Since the program began Anton's has collected over 856,000 coats. Last year the drive collected 52,000 coats. Let's see if we can collect more this year!
