Coat Distribution A Success.

Last week we had a successful coat distribution for our families.  What a great way to wrap up a year full of community activities!

We are in the process of planning another coat collection/distribution during January.  Please contact us here if you have any cold weather items to donate.  Specifically, looking for hats, gloves, scarves, and kids coats or jackets (sizes 7-16).  Of course, any donations are much appreciated.  These specifics were direct requests from families in need.

Please search your closets for donations and pass the word!

Thank you.

Our Blog Turns 1!

It is very humbling to realize that our Newhallville.Community.Matters blog has just reached one year old as we come to the end of 2013.

Our journey is fueled by determination and reality.  We are resolute in continuing this journey; now allied with new supporters who share our vision.  Supporters we met because of this online community.  We have accomplished much this year!
