The Masonic Angel Foundation (MAF) today delivered another batch of warm winter coats to the staff at Station Avenue Elementary School in South Yarmouth. This is the second shipment of coats the Masonic Angels have provided for the kids at the school.
Today's delivery also included dozens of brand new backpacks.
Last Friday, MAF President Robert Fellows paid a final visit to the Sears store at the Cape Cod Mall to see what bargains might be available. "We ended up buying every children's winter coat remaining in the store. We also bought up all the backpacks that remained in stock." Fellows reports. "With the deep discounts available, we were able to purchase over $3,700 worth of coats and backpacks for about $679!"
The Masonic Angels plan continue their winter coat distribution until they reach 1,000 coats. "If the need is there and we can find the coats, we will keep on going," says Mr. Fellows.
The Masonic Angel Foundation has distributed just over 800 coats on Cape Cod so far this season, up from about 450 last year.
