Waltham businesses are needed for a fall community drive to help thousands of adults, children and infants who will go without a warm winter coat this winter. Celebrating 25 years of caring as New England's largest coat drive, Coats for Kids is seeking Waltham companies, nonprofits and community organizations to join its collection partners and distribution network for the 25th annual Coats for Kids Drive. Sponsored by Anton's Cleaners, Jordan's Furniture and Enterprise Bank, the drive will kick off Oct. 14 and run through Jan. 12, 2020. In 2018, the organization reached its goal of collecting and distributing 1 million coats since the program began in 1995. Coats for Kids accepts warm winter coats that are gently used, good quality and all sizes, especially XL and infant/pre-K sizes. The drive does not accept coats with rips, tears, broken zippers or permanent stains. Sweatshirts, vests and spring coats are not accepted. Coats are accepted at all 42 Anton's Cleaners, six Jordan's Furniture stores and 23 Enterprise Bank branches. For more information, call 978-851-3721, ext. 15, or Stephanie@antons.com.

MutualOne Bank's Charitable Foundation awards $2.5K to expand program

The MutualOne Charitable Foundation awarded $2,500 to Jeff's Place Children's Bereavement Center in Framingham. The grant will support an additional Kid's Club session focused on children between the ages of 3 and 7 who have experienced a traumatic loss in their lives. In 2018, Jeff's Place added a second Kid's Club session in part thanks to support from the MutualOne Charitable Foundation, according to Executive Director David Sternburg. "This demographic remains our fastest-growing segment," Sternburg said. "We need the third group session to serve families with younger children who are currently on our wait list." The $2,500 grant supporting Jeff's Place was among awards totaling $38,000 in the foundation's most recent round of funding. Established in 1998 as the philanthropic arm of MutualOne Bank, the MutualOne Charitable Foundation has since donated over $4.5 million to charitable, educational and civic initiatives.
