"Clothing needs include long-sleeve tops and T-shirts, sweatshirts, leggings, jeans, pajamas in all sizes, pajamas for children in sizes 6 to 20, boys winter jackets in all sizes. Socks are also very much needed along with belts, underwear & undershirts, slippers, sneakers, boots, winter hats, gloves, scarves, and sweaters,"
Thomaston Savings Bank has supported the Share the Warmth Drive through an employee collection for the past four years. Cheryl Lindstrom, AVP/Community Outreach Officer commented, "Our bank and employees are always proud to support Acts 4 Ministry's ambitions of inspiring acts of love."
"Our continual mission," explained DiMeo-Carabetta, "is to provide individuals or families who have experienced a life devastating event with opportunities to feel loved as they rebuild their lives with basic needs by coming to our facility to personally select clothing, dishes, glassware, furnishings, and other basic needs at no charge."
The organization partners with churches, social service agencies, and public schools to help identify and serve people regardless of their faith, race, creed, national origin, or willingness to participate in religious activities.
"Individuals and families are often referred to us by other charitable organizations,"
