Massport’s Winter Coat Drive Benefits Children in East Boston and South Boston

The Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport) is pleased to announce a successful turnout for this year’s Winter Coat Drive. More than 70 employees donated their time and money to purchase 40 coats and other winter accessories and deliver them to Crossroads Family Center in East Boston and Condon Community Center in South Boston.

“We are so proud of the support and generosity shown by the employees here at Massport,” said Massport Director of Community Relations and Government Affairs Alaina Coppola. “During these tough times, it is crucial that we look out for our neighbors. The coats, gloves and other winter accessories we provided will not only keep these children warm but also provide relief to their families during this holiday season.”

Massport delivered 20 coats, gloves and hats to children at Crossroads Family Center and another 20 coats and winter accessories to children at Condon Community Center. The children range in age from two to 17 years old.

“We are thankful for our partnership with Massport and being able to work with them again on this year’s Winter Coat Drive,” said Shakira Floyd, Program Coordinator at Crossroads Family Center. “During these hard economic times, these donations will allow families to dedicate their resources to other important needs.”

“Thank you to Massport for the incredible donation of coats and winter items for our most vulnerable families here in South Boston,” said Barbara Kelly, Program Supervisor at Condon Community Center. “As we approach winter, being able to provide the basic need of a warm winter coat is more important than ever.”
