Towne Realty Collecting Coats for Jersey Cares
Posted by Karen Bigos — November 25, 2011
SHORT HILLS, NJ – Towne Realty Group invites our clients, friends and neighbors in the business community to donate to the annual coat drive sponsored by the non-profit organization, Jersey Cares. Warm, gently-used coats will be donated to Jersey Cares as part of its 16th annual coat drive, which has a goal to collect and distribute 50,000 winter coats to at-risk men, women, children and infants in NJ, in time for the holidays this year.
Now through Dec. 15, Towne Realty Group’s Short Hills office, at 511 Millburn Avenue, on the corner of Campbell Road, will accept warm, clean and gently-used men’s, women’s, children’s and infants' coats. We will transport the donations to a nearby collection site for distribution. We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and the day after, but are open all other days for donations.
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 delivered to the office Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
