10,000 New Winter Coats Delivered!

January 15, 2008   will be a day long remembered by the Coats for Kids Foundation.  It marks the date when we dleivered the 10,000th new winter coat to a needy child, and it was done by our shipping partner, Purolator USA!

The dleivery was to Manpower, Inc., Asheville, NC, an organization that partnered with the Coats for Kids Foundation last fall to raise money and collect new coats for kids in the counties of Buncombe, Henderson and Madison Counties, and Asheville City Schools.

Before this delivery, a total of 3616 new coats were delivered in 2007, slightly less than 2006.  Nonetheless, at year-end, 9964 new coats had been delivered since January 1, 2004.

"We are recognizing this milestone, not for what we have done, but for what literally hundreds of individuals and companies have helped us do these past four years," said Paul Darby, President.

"At a time when there are so many problems, we are proud that we are able to offer hope and encouragement to kids who have never had a new winter coat.," Darby added.  "It is very important for us to recognize the fact that we would be far short of the 10,000 goal were it not for our new shipping partner, Purolator USA.  They stepped up in December, recognized the importance of what we are doing, and we've been filling requests for new coats across the U.S. ever since."
