Thanks for making coat drive a success

To the editor:

The Pettengill House would like to extend our sincere thanks to the community for the tremendous support we received for our eighth annual Winter Coat Drive. The donations we received through local schools, businesses, faith organizations and individuals enabled us to provide 395 coats to individuals and families in need. An additional 282 coats were provided to local agencies, ensuring those in need would have continued access this winter.

We would also like to thank our volunteers who donated their time and energy to make this program possible: Betty Breau, Karen French, David Mackie, Jean Mercer, Bethany Noseworthy and the students of Amesbury Academy Charter Public School, Stephanie Pellegrini, Ralph and Taylor Turgeonand Laurie Wile.

Finally, a very special thank-you to our Volunteer Program coordinator, Peg Brown. This program could not have happened without her leadership and dedication!

On behalf of Deborah Smith, executive director, as well as our staff, volunteers and board of directors, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to our annual coat drive for their generosity and support of the Pettengill House.

Mary Morse

Program coordinator,

The Pettengill House
