Chelsea Community Connections held a clothing drive for local children Saturday at Luther Place behind the Chelsea Walk off Broadway.
The agency, known for his outstanding work in assisting children and families in several capacities, will return to the same location this Saturday (July 18), from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., for the distribution of clothes to those in need.
“Residents from Chelsea and surrounding communities are being generous with the donations of clothing items that we will be distributing on July 18,” said CCC Director Cara Cogliano.
CCC regularly distributes clothing at its office headquarters, located at 113 Hawthorne St., Chelsea, throughout the year. “But because our office is closed to the public right now due to space and not being able to socially distance from one another, we have made alternative arrangements to make sure so we can get clothes out to the kids and families in the area,” said Cogliano.
CCC has been an integral contributor to the Chelsea community for more than 25 years. Cogliano has been the CCC director for eight years.
“Not only do we help with clothing for families, we help support families by getting them connected to information and resources in the community – and we provide parenting support groups,” said Cogliano.
The coronavirus health crisis forced the agency to cancel its summer field trip program.
