SIPS Students holding gently-used coat drive at the Blake Middle School.
Blake Middle School students SIPS (Sudents in Public Service) Students, under the direction of Social Studies teacher, Michael Gow, are holding their annual gently-used coat drive sponsored by Anton's Cleaners. Over the past eight years, SIPS students have collected nearly 800 coats. These coats have helped needy families across multiple neighborhoods in Massachusetts. Parents and students are encouraged to help by donating "gently used" coats through Friday, January 11. Donation boxes are located at the main entrance to the school.
The annual coat drive is going on now at Blue Moon Bagel Cafe, Shaw's Plaza (Route 109).
The annual Medfield Lions Club and Blue Moon Bagel Cafe coat drive is on! Any "gently used coats" that are no longer needed, can be dropped off at Blue Moon Bagel Cafe. For the next three months, until the end of February 2013, a donation box will be available at the Blue Moon Bagel Cafe entrance. The coats will be given to charities in the Medfield area. The Lions have made arrangements to donate coats to two Metrowest charities -- A Place to Turn (Natick) and Project Just Because (Hopkinton) -- and Rosie's Place, a charity serving needy and homeless women located in Boston. For more information or with any questions contact either Medfield Lion John Carey (508-359-4861) or Linda Freedman at Blue Moon Bagel Cafe (508-359-8880).
