Purl’s Sheet Metal wrapped up our 2016 Coats for Kids drive with a total collection of 354 coats. Coats were collected by our customers, employees, and the kids at St. Joachim School & Lincoln Elementary School in Madera. This has been an extraordinarily cold winter and every coat collected was desperately needed.
We celebrated at Lincoln School with the class who collected the most amounts of coats. The pizza party with Mrs. Sears and her 2nd-grade class gave us the opportunity to thank for the kids for their part in bringing in a total of 354 coats. We appreciate the hard work of the students! We visited with the class about the importance of helping others in our community and how we can all make a difference.
All of the coats collected stayed in Madera County and were distributed by our local Salvation Army Office. What a great way to celebrate successful Coats for Kids drive in Madera, and we look forward to another great year in 2017.
