The Charlestown Coalition and TURN IT AROUND are once again partnering
with the Collier family to honor the late, great, John Collier, Sr. by giving back to the community. The past two years the focus was on providing warm clothing and hygiene products
to Boston's homeless and those struggling with addiction. This year the Collier family would like to focus on the teenagers of Charlestown! Please bring your donations to one of the locations on the flyer. Thank you and Happy Holidays!
