PARSIPPANY — John Guest USA, 20 East Halsey Road helped out Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany by accepting deliveries of over 200 winter jackets.

Member Gordon Meth was seeking a company with a loading dock to accept delivery of hundreds of winter coats for Kiwanis Club to distribute to the homeless community. To date Jackets acquired was 215; Jackets donated were 149, and 66 more jackets to be distributed. Great job Gordon Meth!

John Guest was more than happy to receive two pallets full of boxes with the winter coats at their new facility in Parsippany and store them until Gordon Meth picked them up to distribute to Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany, Kiwanis Club of Clifton and Kiwanis Club of South Orange Maplewood.

Those clubs then distributed them to various organizations, including Isaiah House in East Orange; Oasis Haven for Women and Children in Paterson; Jersey Battered Women’s Shelter; Family Promise of Morris County Drop in Center for Homeless; Clifton High School and St. Michael’s Church in Newark.
