Coats for Kids Wrap Up 2018

Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning wrapped up the 2018 Coats for Kids drive.

We enjoyed working with our customers, community and our local schools.   We give a big thank you our partners at Saint Joachim School.   The students and parents brought in numerous coats.   We are proud to announce we collected over 300 coats.    All of the coats collected will stay in Madera County and will be distributed by our local Salvation Army Office.

We want to thank our customers and friends who brought in both new and slightly used coats for this drive.  Thank you to the teachers, parents and students at St. Joachim Schools!  We were overwhelmed by the donations and generosity.   Huge thank you to our local Salvation Army for all the great work they do!    All of the coats collected will be given to children who need them most in the local San Joaquin Valley.

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.
