Cloth­ing drive

Public Spirit - - LETTERS -

To the ed­i­tor:

The need for cloth­ing re­mains a very ba­sic hu­man ne­ces­sity. Many fam­i­lies in our community continue to strug­gle to sup­port, pro­vide for, and clothe their fam­i­lies in this chal­leng­ing eco­nomic cli­mate.

In part­ner­ship with the lo­cal branch of the Needle­work Guild of Amer­ica (NGA), dur­ing the month of Oc­to­ber, I will be col­lect­ing new socks and un­der­wear to be do­nated to lo­cal fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als. Dur­ing this drive, we are only ask­ing for socks and un­der­wear. To make a do­na­tion of new socks or un­der­wear, please drop them off at my dis­trict of­fice at 19 S. York Road in Hat­boro.

If any­one wants to make an­other type of new cloth­ing do­na­tion, NGA has an ac­tive lo­cal branch that meets weekly at the Hat­boro Bap­tist Church An­nex lo­cated on North York Road.

If you would like to do­nate, vol­un­teer, or par­tic­i­pate in the NGA, please call them at 267-240-6940 for more in­for­ma­tion.

Thank you in ad­vance for your con­sid­er­a­tion. State Rep. Thomas P.
