On Wednesday October 30th we completed our coat drive and made the delivery to: The Door www.thedoor.org. Thanks to Jamie Rutman circulating a flyer through the PA and allowing a donation box at SoF over the course of 3 weeks, SoF filled the donation bin many times over. This coat drive was a joint effort between SoF and American Century Investments who also collected coats. 10th graders Adrianna Benn and Abby Bessinger helped deliver the coats from SoF to American Century prior to the donation date.
We were able to collect the following items:
- 60 winter coats
- 20 hats / 20 gloves / 20 scarves
- 1 bag of men’s warm clothing / 1 bag of women’s warm clothing / 1 bag of boys clothing
