Pettengill House Annual Winter Coat Drive

October 17, 2014

The Pettengill House 9th Annual Winter Coat Drive is upon us and we need your help to help others.  Over the past 8 years community donations have provided 3,755 coats (along with gloves, mittens, hats and scarfs) to area adults, children and families.

Headed by staff and our dedicated volunteers, this year The Pettengill House is partnering with Coastal Connections, Inc., Amesbury, MA to support Greater Newburyport residents in nine local communities. Coastal Connections has generously agreed to host the collection and distribution of coats at their site.

We are once again asking that coats be new or gently used in clean, good condition for adults and children.  Sizes needed range from infant to adult, but the greatest need is in the adult extra-large sizes and teen heavy fleece and hoodies winter gear. Donations will be accepted at the Coastal Connections site, 35 Water Street, Amesbury, MA.  On November 5th, 12th, and 19th from 1-5pm only.

Please share this information with your friends, family and co-workers.  All donations stay local and have an immediate impact on those in need, especially our children.

For further information please contact Peg at

As always monetary donations are also welcome.
