Wareham Public Schools thanks Dr. Chris Thornell for a huge donation to the Office of Beyond School Time’s annual coat drive.
Thornell, whose children attend Wareham schools, and his patients at New England Family Chiropractic collected 121 new coats for the drive. The office has been a drop-off point for coats for more than a decade.
“We used to do things for the holidays for needy families,” Thornell explained. “We decided one year that we were going to do a coat drive and it really took off.”
Thornell and his son, Cooper, delivered the haul — which filled the back of Thornell’s pick-up truck — on Thursday, November 20.
The Office of Beyond School Time continues to collect new and gently-used coats of all sizes. If you or a family member are in need of a coat, stop by the office, located on the second floor of the Multi-Service Center (48 Marion Road) on Wednesdays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. If you cannot make it during that time, call 508-291-3500, ext. 3556 to schedule an appointment.
Thanks again to Dr. Thornell and the patients of New England Family Chiropractic for helping Wareham’s families!
