Cooler weather is coming and we’re excited to be helping kids in our community by hosting a coat drive – Coats For Kids! With so many kids in need in our area, we knew there was something we could do. We have partnered up with Helping Hands Mission, a non profit organization in Raleigh, to collect coats for kids in need. We are currently collecting new and gently used coats of all children’s sizes at our Wake Forest office location (1743 South Main Street, Suite 202) from Monday – Friday between the hours of 9-Noon. We’ll be collecting donations until October 31st.
Helping Hands Mission is a local non profit organization with multiple locations in Raleigh. They collect donations including food, clothing, toys and furniture to help those in need in the area. They currently offer 16 programs and events which are all free of charge in order be of support ant help to local children, teens, elderly, homeless, handicapped, disabled, and low income families, as well as victims of fire as they become self sufficient.
Being able to help those out in need is something so near and dear to our hearts – and it’s so important to give back to the community that we live, work and play in. But we can’t do it alone. WE NEED YOUR HELP!! If you have a coat or two that your little ones have grown out of, please bring it in. Please also help spread the word about our Coats For Kids coat drive – tell your neighbor, tell a friend in carpool, share it on Facebook! You can help us make a difference – we can’t do this alone. We need to come together as a community and help those around us who need it most. The temperatures have already dropped to the mid-30’s and they’ll continue to drop as the weeks go on. NOW IS THE TIME to make a difference! Now is the time to help! Even one coat can make such a huge impact on the lives of those around us. One coat WILL make a difference on if a child is cold or warm this winter.
If you have a larger donation or can not donate during these hours, please call us directly at 919-443-0500 and we will arrange another time to meet or a pick up location.
