Coat Drive!

Do you recall that coat sitting in your closet that you bought last year….but you took off 5 pounds and now it doesn’t quite fit correctly. (Notice I didn’t say put ON 5 pounds…Come’ on, let’s be upbeat here)


Your children or grandchildren who are just growing like weeds and they outgrew that beautiful coat you bought them last year…


Remember the coat that your Aunt Sally gave you…It’s a great coat…but it’s blue and blue doesn’t go with your eyes and you never wore it…


September 8th marks the end of Phase 2 of 3 of a “Year of Giving “ . Phase 2 will take all those coats we just discussed and donate them to “Stand Down” at the Veterans Home and Hospital later in September. Many of you may be veterans and if you are not veterans then perhaps your brother or father or sister or mother were. Stand Down allows many of the veterans AND THEIR FAMILIES who are currently in desperate need to come to the Veterans home and get services for free. It’s an opportunity to show we care and give them a much needed boost. One of these services is the donation of new and nearly new clothes to get them through the winter.

Many don’t realize it but a very high percentage of the needy in the state are Veterans

We have committed to supplying the coats for that event . This is a joint event with the Masons, American Legion , American Legion Aux., the Knights of Columbus, the Chamber of Commerce.

If you are a member of those organizations…we need your help…

If you are not a member of those organizations then ……..we still need your help.

Saturday, September 8th from 10 am to 2pm at the Masonic Lodge , 76 Main St. ,Southington, we will be collecting those coats from your closets at a “drop off” here at the lodge

Please check your closets for those coats in new or nearly new condition. I know, you’ve been meaning to clean out your closets anyway

Thank you for all that you do …..and will do in the future.

Thank you…looking forward to seeing you,

God Bless,
David Hubbs
Friendship 33 Masonic Lodge

PS While we are talking about Vets….September 12th, 5-7 pm , the American Legion Aux will be running a spaghetti Dinner at the Elks here in Southington to benefit “Hometown Heroes
Be there!
