Always eager to get involved in the community, the agents and employees of Towne Realty Group’s Short Hills, NJ office,
are collecting gently used coats to contribute to the Jersey Cares Coat Drive. We are asking friends, neighbors and clients to look through your closets and see if you can find just one coat to help someone in need. If you cannot get to our office to drop them off, we can come to you and pick them up! We are almost at 100 coats and we want more! The deadline for contributions is this Friday, December 16th!
Jersey Cares is an amazing organization, that helps at-risk residents of New Jersey, stay warm by organizing, promoting, collecting, sorting and distributing thousands of coats each year. Last year alone they contributed 50,000 coats to local citizens and they are trying to increase that number in this, their 16th annual coatdrive.
The Mission Statement for Jersey Cares says it all:
Our Mission Statement: Jersey Cares increases civic engagement in New Jersey by coordinating volunteer opportunities to address community-identified needs.
We also invite you to get your children involved by participating in the Note in a Coat Program:
The Note in a Coat program works to increase the number of children’s coats donated and to personalize the experience for those receiving and giving coats. Through Note in a Coat, children donating coats, write short notes to children receiving coats through the Jersey Cares Coat Drive. The notes are individually placed in the pockets of each coat. The children typically write short notes saying hello, telling the recipient something about themselves, expressing their favorite memory in the coat, and that they hope the recipient enjoys the coat. The goal of this program is to engage children in service by making the experience interactive and meaningful.
Donations can be made delivered to the office during business hours: Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 5 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
