Coats, Coats and More Coats!

This year, Cradles to Crayons, an amazing partner of the Quincy School ~ Community Partnership, doubled their donation of winter coats/jackets (500 to 1,000) for Quincy Public Schools students. Hats and gloves were also donated! Leslie Bridson, McKinney Vento Homeless Coordinator/Foster Care Point of Contact for Quincy Public Schools, said it best: “The Cradles to Crayons winter clothing donation was wonderful! We were so excited to be able to supply a plethora of coats and hats/gloves to so many of our schools! Thanks to the compassion and generosity of Cradles to Crayons, we supplied warm clothing to 11 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 2 pre-school programs. Just fantastic! We’re so fortunate in Quincy Public Schools to work alongside such amazing community partners as Cradles to Crayons. All of us are collaboratively helping children and youth succeed in school, as well as showing these students that others care about their well-being.” Special thanks to Cradles to Crayons for this generous donation!!
