'COATS FOR KIDS' PROGRAM SPONSORED BY MERRIMACK ROTARY


MERRIMACK - The Rotary Club of Merrimack sponsored the "Coats for Kids" program this year. The "Coats for Kids" program provides winter coats for children in Merrimack who have none. This year, the program gave away 22 coats to children in Merrimack.

"This is the 9th year the 'Coats for Kids' program has provided winter coats for local kids," said Paul Belfiore, a Rotarian coordinator along with Peter Flood the Club's Community Service Chair. "This year, the Merrimack Rotary was able to fund the entire program without the need for outside donations. The recipients of the coats are so grateful for the warm gifts."

 

A recent thank you note from a recipient mentioned the club's generosity, " You help me put on a strong face knowing my boys will get gifts and new coats this year.  Every year I hope I'm the one donating."
