MARLBOROUGH – Thirty boxes, plus five big bags of winter clothing are en route to those who need it most.
On Jan. 18, Solomon Pond Mall wrapped up its annual holiday drive by presenting the winter clothes to representatives from Sweats for Vets and the United Way.
Jennifer Bray, resource development manager for the United Way of Tri County, said the clothing would be sent along to the Community Cupboard in Marlborough, as well as the food pantry on Pearl Street in Framingham.
Mark Vital, Ward 1 city councilor, accepted donations on behalf of Sweats for Vets, which helps provide sweatshirts for homeless veterans.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to give back to the community,” said Lisa Kelley, general manager for the mall.
Representatives from the Marlborough Economic Development Corp. were also on hand.
According to Solomon Pond Marketing Director Mark Willand, the mall did “extremely well” during the holiday season.
In addition, live music and winter markets will be returning in February.
