Winter coat drive brings warmth to many in southern Maine
Williams Realty Partners (WRP) recently launched a winter coat drive, collecting new and gently used coats for distribution to residents in need in southern Maine. The coats were delivered to the YCCAC Kittery office in January, along with cash and check donations totaling $153.00
Troy Williams, owner of Williams Realty, has led the effort to collect winter clothing for residents of the Greater York Region for a number of years. Donation drop-off locations are typically set up throughout southern York County, and on Saturdays the WRP trolley, affectionately named “Stella,” made trips to collect the coats. YCCAC, with its office in the Kittery Community Center, was selected to distribute the coats through its Community Outreach program.
