McGonagle delivers coats, winter items to veterans

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  Last week State Rep. Joe McGonagle delivered dozens of Home Depot buckets containing coats and other winter items to veterans across Everett and its neighboring communities as part of the Massachusetts Legislature’s “Coats4Vets” initiative. These buckets came in addition to the dozens he handed out at the City of Everett’s Veterans Day event.

  “Giving back to our veterans [is] one the causes closest to my heart, so I am very grateful to have this opportunity to help in a worthwhile fashion,” said McGonagle. “It’s no secret that our veterans are often forgotten or neglected so to be able to help in just a small way is a good start while we work on bigger solutions. It is especially poignant at this time of year with Veterans Day and Thanksgiving, to be extra grateful for their sacrifice. I owe all my thanks to Rep. Steven Xiarhos, Rep. Kip Diggs, Senator Su Moran and Senate President Karen Spilka for sponsoring the event that collected all these items. I’d also like to thank Everett Director of Veterans Affairs Antoine Coleman and his team for helping to organize the distribution.”
