WillBridge House Starts Collection Drive


Anticipating the cold snap that’s settled upon the South Coast, administrators with the WillBridge House have initiated a collection drive for knit hats, scarves, socks, shoes, gloves, and anything else that might help keep the homeless warm in the months ahead. WillBridge House, which provides shelter and treatment for those with mental-health and addiction problems, plans to distribute these items prior to Christmas. Donations are being accepted at the main office at 2904 State Street near Alamar Avenue.
