Westerly's Jonnycake Center offers free winter hats, gloves and face masks to those in need
Westerly — The Jonnycake Center is offering free winter hats, gloves and face masks to area residents in need.
The items are available in a variety of sizes for adults and children. They have been provided by Westerly-area residents and businesses, service clubs and religious groups. There is currently a limit of one of each item per person.
"With more neighbors than ever struggling financially amid the pandemic, we felt it was imperative to offer winter essentials free of charge for those most in need," said Sarah Cote, the center's social services program director.
To receive items, call (401) 377-8069 and select Option 1; email Cote at email@example.com; or visit the social services office at 23 Industrial Drive between noon and 3 p.m. on Mondays, and 9 a.m. and noon on Tuesday through Friday.
