The Masonic Angel Foundation continues its Beehive Winter Coats program's winter coat deliveries. The Masonic Angels have delivered over 500 coats so far this season and many more coat orders are inbound from vendors.
Thursday's featured delivery was at Independence House in Hyannis. Independence House had requested 15 winter coats for girls and boys they serve. The Masons also provided Independence House with a case of winter hats and two cases of children's gloves. Two cartons of Teddy Bears were among the items delivered Thursday morning.
This is the fourth year the Masonic Angel Foundation has offered the Beehive Winter Coats program to schools and agencies on Cape Cod. Funding for the program comes from local Masonic Angel Fund chapters, the Cape Cod Five, the Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Massachusetts, Grand Lodge of Masons in Massachusetts, The Lodge of St. Andrew and a generous private donor.
The staff at Independence House was especially delighted that the coats arrived just as the weather turns sharply cooler.
