Unity Program to Host Children’s Coat Drive
Participants from Unity Health System’s Healthy Start Program will host a children’s coat drive Thursday, November 1, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Unity St. Mary’s Campus, 89 Genesee Street.
Members of the community are asked to drop-off donations of.new or gently-used children’s coats, hats, scarves, gloves and boots at the main loop at the front entrance of the St. Mary’s campus.
Healthy Start is a program for pregnant young mothers that provides education about maintaining a healthy pregnancy and parenting.
The women hosting the coat drive are participants of Project Independence. Project Independence is a grant-funded extension of Unity’s Healthy Start Program that provides the young women and mothers an opportunity to attain their career goals.
With the guidance of an advisor, these women are able to make steps toward earning their high school diplomas or their GED, as well as identify the skill that make them stand out on their resume. The women are also able to participate in on-going sessions to help develop relationships with local schools, colleges, and training programs.
