This November, Carrigan Intermediate School and Bailey Middle School hosted its 6th Annual Winter Coat Shopping Nights. The 2-night event was held at Bailey Middle School and was organized by teachers Dina Jones, an 8th grade Social Studies teacher at Bailey, and Maura Izzo, a social worker at Carrigan.

The event was a huge success thanks to our West Haven community. There were 739 new or gently used coats handed out to families in need, up significantly from 503 a year ago. There were also hundreds of hats, scarves, and gloves given to families as well.
