Representative Muradian to Host “Bundle up the Blackstone Valley” Coat Drive

coat driveRepresentative David K. Muradian, Jr. (R-Grafton) invites all to participate in “Bundle up the Blackstone Valley”, a coat drive to benefit families and children in need within the Blackstone Valley.

Rep. Muradian and volunteers will be collecting new or gently used, and washed, coats on Thursday, December 3rd, 2015, in the upstairs function room of The Grafton American Legion Post 92 from 5 pm to 8 pm. All donations are to be distributed to local schools, as well as other organizations within the Blackstone Valley. Food for the event will be graciously provided by Bushel N’ Peck and Pepperoni Express. Santa will be visiting from 6-8 pm, so please bring your kids!

“It is terribly sad to think there could be children and families in our community that, without our help, could be cold this winter,” stated Rep. Muradian. “I hope that, with the help of our constituents and community members, we can keep the Blackstone Valley warm this winter. If individuals wish to participate but cannot make it on December 3rd, there will be drop-off locations throughout our communities as well.”

Drop boxes will be available at:

-Dunkin Donuts in Grafton

-The Whitin Community Center in Northbridge

-The Upton Town Hall

Should you have any questions about the event, please contact 774-293-1318 or
