Every child has a smiling face at Lace

Meg Cooper with Principal Marty Casey

Marty Casey, Principal of Lace School in Darien, is a good friend of Assistance League.  He welcomes us to his school, helps match the kids to an ALCW volunteer and stays until the last child is fitted with a brand new coat, hat and gloves.  Social worker Megan Seagraves also lends a very willing hand, making our efforts swift and efficient. "To get something new is something special," Seagraves said. "The coat is new, it's theirs and they're so happy."

Lace's bulldog mascot was a great spot for extra coats
