BCWLA donates to Community Assistance Program / Coat Drive

At the Northview BCWLA golf function, we presented John Bennett of Livingstone with a donation to the Community Assistance Program and it runs Coat Drive, a community food program, and children's programs..  Immediately following the event John got busy and put the money to great use.  It is a rare case these days to contribute to a charity that has zero overhead with 100% of the donated funds going directly to a donated cause.  This is one of those instances where the money was used to go towards school supplies for children.
