New England Urgent Care Shares the Spirit of the Season with its Second Annual Holiday Toy & Coat Drive
New England Urgent Care is accepting new, unwrapped toys and new or gently used and clean coats for its annual holiday toy & coat drive to benefit area families. The event runs from November 18th to December 18th at all four of its locations — Bristol, Enfield, Manchester and West Hartford. Donations can be dropped off daily during business hours.
“New England Urgent Care participates in many events throughout the year in support of our community. There is no better way to get into the holiday spirit than helping those in need,” explains Luciane Mastrangeli, New England Urgent Care Lead X-ray Technician and Marketing Coordinator.
The collected items will be distributed during the holidays to families in Manchester, West Hartford and surrounding towns by two area nonprofits — the Manchester Area Conference of Churches (MACC) and the Bridge Family Center in West Hartford.
Mastrangeli added, “Last year was our first year doing the drive. We collected approximately 30 coats and 20 toys. I think we will be able do more this year.”
