Massena Memorial Hospital employees recently donated 63 articles of warm winter outerwear to Massena Central School students.
Massena Central School Superintendent Patrick Brady and Anne Marie Miller, the school’s nurse, accepted the donations on behalf of the students.
Beginning in mid-November, the hospital’s employees, auxiliary members, and board of managers began dropping off new and gently used coats, gloves, scarves and snow suits for the winter outerwear donation drive.
“We know how brutal our North Country winters can be,” Tina Corcoran, the hospital’s senior public relations director, said. “Everyone, especially children, need a good warm winter clothing to keep the winter chill away. We are glad we could do our small part in keeping children warm this winter.”
Massena Central School nursing staff will distribute the clothing to children in grades K – 12.
Superintendent Patrick Brady expressed appreciation for the hospital’s donation.
“We are grateful for our partnership with the Massena Memorial Hospital,” he said. “The generosity of MMH employees, especially at this time of year, is sincerely appreciated. Our community is strengthened by such acts of kindness for our children and families.”
