Dec. 4, 2023-- The United Way of Monmouth and Ocean Counties' (UWMOC) annual Warmest Wishes Coat Drive has benefitted Toms River students for several years now. And each year, the program seems to expand to more schools and feature more winterwear.
This year, for example, 13 district schools received not just warm coats, but hoodies and socks as well. Drivers Harry Staples and Carl Atkins (right, to begin slideshow) picked up the coats at the UPS Facility in Tinton Falls Friday, and began delivering them to schools. Thank you, UWMOC, for helping to keep our kids warm during the winter months and, especially, the holiday season.
