NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Volunteers and COTY Project staff raised more than $600 from a tag sale held this past Saturday.
Items were donated from a number of generous citizens. Board members and other volunteers organized, transported, and priced the items for sale.
The funds raised will go to support the youth center and, according to COTY Executive Director Caitlin McConnell, the funds are really needed to sustain on-going programs.
COTY, or Catholic Outreach to Youth, serves hundreds of local youngsters annually through programs including the summer KUB academy, a summer enrichment program for elementary age youth; after-school learning programs; and the Young Life Program. In addition, the COTY Project provides a much-needed drop in program for older youth that provides them with a place to play sports, use computers or just a place to hang out.
