Do Good

Coats for Kids by Anton’s Cleaners and Jordan’s Furniture

Do some good. Clean out your closet and help keep a kid warm by donating the coats to Coats for Kids. It’s easy and there are so many donations spots – any of Anton’s Cleaners locations (there are 42) and any of the Jordan’s Furniture locations (there are five). Since 1985, Anton’s Cleaners has collected, cleaned and distributed nearly 800,000 coats. Let’s give them a shout out and a little help meeting their goal of 60,000 coats for kids this winter.

So while you’re changing over your closet from summer to winter, earmark a couple of coats for Coats to Kids. You’ll be glad you did, and more importantly, so will the children who get the much needed coats. Need more info?

What: Collecting Warm Winter Coats for Children & Adults

When: October 12th, 2015- January 8, 2016

Where: Warm winter coats will be accepted at all Anton’s Cleaners and Jordan’s Furniture locations

In these hard economic times there are thousands of individuals in our very own community that are without a warm winter coat. Donated coats will be cleaned free of charge by Anton’s Cleaners. Once collected and cleaned, coats will be distributed through the Coats for Kids Distribution Partners network, which includes organizations such as Massachusetts Community Action Programs (MASSCAP), Salvation Army, Middlesex Human Service Agency, BU Medical Center Outreach Van Project, Wish Project, Community Giving Tree, Mental Health Association of Greater Lowell, Strafford County Community Action, Catholic Charities, to name just a few

You can become a partner, sign up your school, or make a monetary donation online, or just drop off a coat or two. It all helps. And thank you.

Red Sox Nation is Donor Nation

DSCN2054Organ Donor Awareness Day at Fenway Park is Friday, August 14, 2015 #DonorNation at #RedSoxNation

Are you an organ donor?  If so, you probably registered at the Registry of Motor Vehicles, and while that’s great, it leads to a fractured underlying system instead of one single streamlined database. Organize.org has found an innovative way to bring the organ donation registration system to the 21st century. And they hope to be out of business sooner rather than later by having solved the problem. Almost 123,000 Americans are waiting for an organ transplant, and each day an average of 21 people die while still waiting. Can you be part of the solution? Yes, and it’s easier than you think.

Are you going to Friday’s game against the Mariners? If so, give a huge shout out to Rick Segal. Rick is (like many of us), a life-long Red Sox fan, he is also father of the co-founder of Organize.org, Greg Segal, and has the honor of throwing out the first pitch at Fenway Park on Organ Donor Awareness Night. Rick Segal waited five years for his heart transplant and was the inspiration for Organize.org. Let’s rally #RedSoxNation around #DonorNation. Use the hashtag #DonorNation to let people know about this wonderful idea.

BACKGROUND
ORGANIZE is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on ending the organ donation crisis. Co-founders Greg Segal and Jenna Arnold launched ORGANIZE after Greg’s father Rick waited 5 years for a heart transplant. ORGANIZE is modernizing the organ donor registration process by allowing people to share their donor wishes on social media with specific hashtags, rather than at the DMV or via a long and clunky form. For its work, ORGANIZE received an Innovator in Residence position in the Secretary’s Office of the US Department of Health and Human Services, and was awarded the 2015 Verizon Powerful Answers Award as the top healthcare start-up in the country.
 

There’s School Tomorrow…Finally!

There’s School Tomorrow! Now that you’re dug out…time to get all your errands done!

Like going to the grocery store, the pharmacy, maybe pick up some Valentine’s Day gifts. I, ahem, may or may not have eaten some intended gifts during the hunkering down time. Note to self – next year buy non-consumable items like the ones at Linden Square. Don’t worry – they have chocolate, too.

Roche Brothers and CVS are both in Linden Square which makes shopping there practical, too. Here is a lovely gift-buying guide to help you with some ideas. Just don’t get snowed in and decide you are going to keep them for yourself – more snow coming on Thursday – you may not have time to replace them, and for goodness sake, don’t get edible gifts! Check out some sweet ideas below and then scroll down to see what else is happening in the Square. I got the sweetest newsletter and copied it for you – you are welcome.
