Purolator USA New Coats for Kids Foundation Shipper!

Purolator Logo Monday, December 17th was a great day for the Coats for Kids Foundation when we received word that Purolator USA would ship and deliver our new coats, nats, and gloves to needy kids throughout the United States.  Tuesday we began preparing shipments.  Wednesday, Purolator will pick them up.  Friday, the coats will be on the children who most likely have never had a new winter coat.

Conal Finnegan, Vice President, Strategic Development and Business Initiatives, Purolator USA said, "Coats for Kids" is a tremendous organization that each year helps thousands of less fortunate children throughout the United States.  Providing these children with new warm coats allows them a basic necessity during the cold winter months, and also lets them know that people care.  The  employees of Purolator USA are proud to support this organization by donating the transportation and delivery of these coats."

  The Coats for Kids Foundation shipped more than 800 new winter coats to kids in California, Oregon, Washington, Kansas, and Massachusetts.

Paul Darby, president of the Coats for Kids Foundation, said, "There can be no greater gift to children at this time of year than to demonstrate to them that they are valued.  A new coat makes that statement.  It also may well be the first time that many of these kids are able to fully participate in school activities--including recess--because they now have a new winter coat just like their classmates.  Words cannot express how grateful and humbled we are for the wonderful, caring staff at Purolator USA."
