Share the Warmth
Volunteer Council Collecting Coats
Taft’s Volunteer Council is once again collecting new and gently used coats, hats, gloves, and scarves for Acts 4 Ministry’s annual Share the Warmth coat drive.
Taft has enjoyed a long partnership with Waterbury-based Acts 4 Ministry, Inc., a non-denominational, non-profit charitable organization that supports the needs of families and individuals in financial distress through the collection and distribution of reusable furniture, clothing, and housewares. Taft students support the Ministry’s thrift store throughout the year, helping sort donations on Community Service Day, and through donations, including the annual winter coat drive.
Students and families are reminded that this year’s collection begins right after the Thanksgiving break and runs through the start of the December break, and are encouraged to gather items for donation while away from campus this week. Look for collection boxes around campus, including Lincoln Lobby.
