The New Bedford Educators Association and school nurses teamed up again this year to come to the aid of needy students in the school district. 

The union received an $1,800 grant from its parent organization, Mass. Teachers Association to purchase winter coats, other clothing and school supplies for students.

St. John says Karen Regan did a grant job in finding bargains.  She was able to acquire about $3,000 worth of clothing and supplies. 

The items will be distributed to needy students on Tuesday.
