As winter approaches, kids around New England are starting to gear up for the inevitable: cold weather. The New England Patriots Charitable Foundation and Cradles to Crayons are teaming up to collect enough coats for the over 17,000 requests that they’ll get this year.
NAHS is one of many local schools participating in the Patriots/Cradles to Crayons-sponsored coat drive, which is collecting coats for infants, toddlers, and children up to 12. Donations can be brought to Mrs. Violette’s room (224) daily through November 1st.
Everyone who donates a coat will be entered into a raffle for a $100 gift card to the Patriots Pro Shop. One coat earns you one entry, and there is no limit for how many times you can be entered.
