Final Coats for Kids Count is in!

Thursday, December 5th, 2013

Our final tally is in and all the coats have been picked up and taken to the local Salvation Army office in Madera. We didn’t know how many coats to expect at first and we are truly amazed at the outpouring of support to keep our kids warm this winter. Just last Monday, our count came in at 479. With the end date in sight, we hoped we could break 500 coats…and we did! Our final count came in at 524 coats. We are overjoyed and so thankful to all involved in the donation efforts. The spirit of giving is upon us! Happy Holidays to all from Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning!
