To The Daily Sun,
Neighbors helping neighbors is indeed what it's all about! Altrusa's recent request for community donations of warm winter outerwear for school families was a huge success. Teresa McCormack, school nurse at I-LES, was very pleased (and scrambling for storage space) when box after box and bag after bag of over 220 items of warm outerwear were delivered by Altrusa committee members to Teresa's office for the Oct. 21 Inter-Lakes Elementary School clothing distribution day.
Altrusa would like to thank those donors who generously donated coats, ski pants, hats, scarves, mittens and gloves. What a delight to open bag after bag of brand new hand knit matching winter hats, mittens and scarves. The I-LES playground will be a delight of color when children don these beautiful and warm hand-knit items.
Special thanks to Jacqueline Taylor, financial advisor, and Kathleen Swanson, branch office administrator, of the Edward Jones Investments Office, 14 Main St., Meredith, and Carrie Jordan, AVP Branch and Business Development Manager at Meredith Village Savings Bank, Route 25, Meredith. Their immediate response and generous offer to be clothing drop-off locations made it very convenient for donor drop off and Altrusa pick up throughout the drive.
