The 10th annual Charlotte Coat Drive has come to a close, and the team has just finished counting the coats placed in barrels around the city. Are you ready? You donated 4,023 new and gently used coats for those in need in our community!
This has been a challenging year for everyone. But, we know that the needs in the community don’t stop. In fact, more people are finding themselves in difficult circumstances due to the pandemic.
There were more than 50 barrel locations across the community, and we can’t say “thank you” enough to these businesses and corporations who participated.
The process of getting these coats in the hands of those in need has already begun. We distributed many coats over the Christmas season, and we are also working to hand out coats to the kids at our Boys & Girls Clubs and families experiencing homelessness staying in local motels.
Thank you, Charlotte Mechanical, for your unwavering support and your partnership in bringing the warmth to families in need in our community.
