The Key Club would like to thank everyone who donated to "Coats for Kids and Family" Coat Drive. We collected 90 coats which we donated to the program's sponsors, Anton's Cleaners and Jordan's Furniture. The coats will be cleaned and distributed to social service agencies that work with people in need. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Milton Sports for All Community Service Opportunity!
Milton Sports for All is looking for high school students interested in volunteering to help with their recreational bowling program. You can volunteer for one of the sessions or both. Ms. Facey will sign off on your hours when you provide the paperwork. In the fall, Milton Sports for All had a very fun and successful Kick Ball Program and everyone who participated had a great time. Please email Ms. Facey at email@example.com if you would like to volunteer. There will be a meeting prior to the start to go over how the program will run.
Recreational Bowling: January 6th – March 31st
Milton Sports for All, a recreational, inclusive sports program, is offering candle-pin bowling this winter at Cunningham Hall.
The program is open to kids in grades 4 - 8 who reside in Milton. Bowling will happen on Thursdays from January 6th through March 31st—from 4:30 – 5:15 for grades 4 and 5 and from 5:30 – 6:15 for grades, 6, 7, and 8. No experience (or bowling shoes!) is necessary. Candle-pin bowling uses smaller balls which are easier for kids to bowl.
Milton Sports for All is organized by a volunteer group of parents and community members who believe that sports should not only be fun, but also accessible to all kids regardless of background, experience, or ability. We welcome new volunteers! Our goal is for kids across Milton to have fun playing sports together in a supportive environment where they can meet new friends.

The William James INTERFACE Referral Service is a mental health resource and referral Helpline available Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. It assists Milton residents and/or public school students to access outpatient mental health services. What makes INTERFACE unique is that we do not provide merely a list of providers, but rather matched referrals to mental health professionals and practices who best meet the caller’s needs, insurance or fee requirement, specialty request, location, and availability. The Helpline is staffed by mental health professionals, as well as graduate level students from William James College. For more information about INTERFACE, please visit their website.
