Why A Coat Drive?
Wilton Auto and Tire Center was approached by Kimberly, one of our favorite guests, recently asking for assistance in a winter coat drive. She went on to explain someone close to her recently had passed away, and for many years, this person was heavily involved in a program with https://building1community.org
The programs available to help immigrants integrate in our country, with training, and gaining employment. A lot of these jobs are in Landscaping and construction, which this time of year is outdoors, and these folks need warm jackets to keep warm.
Wilton Auto and Tire Center - Our Support
We felt this to be a great cause, at the time of year we all like to give thanks, and more if we can. Building One Community has set up a link to Amazon, if you would like to donate winter garments which will go directly to their headquarters for distribution. View Building One Community Wishlist.
We are collecting gently used and new jackets/coats etc on site here as well, where Kimberly and I will personally deliver them to those in need.
Any amount will be helpful
One or multiple jackets will be welcomed of course, so please check your closets, and perhaps grab a nice warm work coat while out doing your holiday shopping- if you can’t make it to drop off, I will be happy to come pick items up from you. Happy Holidays!
