Thanks to everyone for supporting the Fall Festival coat and canned good drive. About six dozen coats were collected! They were shared first with Westowne students in need, and the rest are heading to the International Rescue Committee. Additionally, 100 pounds of food was delivered to Catonsville Emergency Assistance. Thanks for taking care of our community, Westowne!
