News 13 Spring Clean Coat Drive
Help those in need! —
Join News 13, Ashley Homestore, and Two Men & a Truck for the 7th Annual Spring Clean Coat Drive for Eblen Charities! Bring a new or gently used coat to the Ashley Homestore location on Airport Road or the Eblen Charities drop off center at the old Bon Marche Warehouse at the end of the Westgate Shopping Center (past Earthfare) 4:30AM to 7PM, Thursday, April 20th!
We'll be out their collecting coats from sun up to sun down! All the coats donated will go to Eblen Charities, who in turn, will gift the coats to those in need next winter. If you don't have a coat to donate, but still want to help Eblen Charities we will also be collecting cash donations. Eblen Charities can use the money to buy coats from retailers who are willing to sell them coats at a huge discount. So whether coat or cash, your donation will provide warmth to someone who would otherwise be left out in the cold!
Why do a Coat Drive in the Spring? Well finally warm weather is coming our way! After a long winter, you may be tired of your coat's style and most children will outgrow this year's coat before the next cold season. Instead of storing it or throwing it away, why not donate them to a good cause? It's also a good time to clean out overcrowded closets and unused coats take up lots of space! Also keep in mind, many retailers will be discounting winter wear, so it's also the perfect time to purchase and donate new coats as well. There really is no better time to do a coat drive!
