Commonwealth Motors Mittens Drive

LAWRENCE, Mass. - Nov. 26, 2013 - PRLog -- Lawrence, Massachusetts, is one of the poorest cities in the United States, and is the poorest in Massachusetts. With a population of just over 82,000 people, 69 percent of whom are Hispanic, 33.1 percent of the people of Lawrence live below the poverty line. Of children under age 18 in Lawrence, 49.9 percent live in households below the poverty line, as do 27 percent of people age 65 and older.

The combination of economic poverty and an unusually expensive housing market leaves many people in Lawrence without enough money to adequately feed themselves.

The majority of those who are hungry are members of families who work and do not earn enough income to pay for both housing and food. Approximately 75 percent of school-age children in Lawrence qualify for government-subsidized food programs – meaning that three out of four children in Lawrence are at risk for hunger.

This Winter Commonwealth Motors Has put together an effort to provide Mittens and Warm Clothes for children. Every Item donated Charlie Daher will make a $5 contribution to benefit Cor Unum Meal Center in Lawrence.

Now Through December 18th We'll be collecting Hats, Mittens and Sweaters at any Commonwealth Motors Dealership to deliver to the Cor Unum Meal Center.

It really rings our bell to see the Commonwealth pull together to help those less fortunate to stay warm this winter.
