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.
