Friends of Mascoma Foundation is always happy to support our Mascoma Valley families! The Warm Winter Clothing and Coat Drive happens because of the generosity of our Mascoma residents who pay it forward. We are honored to have a board member like Beth Felix and her daughter, Kaylee Felix, who take on this project yearly together with a team of volunteers. Thanks to all of you who helped by donating and giving your time so this can happen. Spreading resources rather than discarding it is the way to go!


Kaylee, an eighth-grader at Indian River Middle School, is happy to see how much of an impact the event has had since it began.

For her, it’s all about hanging out and playing outside with her friends no matter the time of year.

“I feel like everyone should be able to go outside and have fun,” she said. “It’s important that everyone helps each other out to make sure everyone has what they need. It’s important to be kind to each other.” ~excerpted from the Valley News, Saturday, October 20, 2018

We are grateful again this year to Canaan, NH Fire and Emergency services for sharing the use of their gathering room with us. We look forward to seeing everyone next year.

If you missed the giveaway and are in need of warm winter clothing, Friends of Mascoma shares items that do not find a home during our giveaway with the Canaan United Methodist Vestry for their Coats Plus program. Coats Plus also offers these items and many more, for Free to our community. Stop by and see what they have to offer.
