NGA Needlework Guild of America has been awarded a grant of $15,000 from The W.W. Smith Charitable Trust.

The grant will be used to purchase new winter coats for children, teens and the elderly of Bucks, Montgomery, Chester, Delaware and Philadelphia counties.

NGA will work with school districts to identify children and students in need and various elderly communities to distribute the coats.

“Thanks to The W.W. Smith Charitable Trust, NGA will be able to provide new winter coats to children, teens and the elderly in the five counties in southeastern Pennsylvania,” said Lisa Tordo, executive director of NGA. “This grant allows us to serve those in need by providing new, warm winter coats.”
