2014 Coats for Kids Drive ~ Thank You Parties!

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

IMG_6457_1_2This week Purl’s Sheet Metal wrapped up our 2014 Coats for Kids drive with pizza parties at St. Joachim and Lincoln Elementary schools in Madera. The pizza parties gave us the opportunity to celebrate with the classes who collected the most amounts of coats for The 2014 Coats for Kids drive.

We had a great time at the schools and had a chance to take a class photo to send home with each of the kids. Brian Driggs and Kurt Davidson of Purl’s Sheet Metal & Air Conditioning took a moment to thank for the kids for their part in bringing in 435 coats. All of the coats collected stayed in Madera County and were distributed by our local Salvation Army Office. Mr. Driggs also talked about the importance of helping others in our community and how we can all make a difference. During the party he also announced that most of the coats collected had already been given to kids in need.

What a great way to celebrate successful Coats for Kids drive in Madera and we look forward to another great year in 2015.

Merry Christmas!

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!
