Coats for Kids Project a big success

The senior members at the Norwood Community/Senior Center have been busy this year collecting coats for children in our community. The seniors wanted to do something to make a positive impact and truly make a difference in the life of a child. Throughout the year, they have been raising money by a Monthly Raffle to accomplish their goal. Sixty-five brand new coats have been purchased and given to Laura Ferguson, Coordinator for Norwood’s After-School Programs, to distribute to children who need them. The seniors also donated some hats, gloves and mittens to go along with the coats.

The senior group has recently become a partner with the Norwood After-School Programs and they look forward to working on future projects that will benefit the children.
