COATS FOR KIDS CAMPAIGN KEEPS

1000 ROCKLANDERS WARM THIS WINTER

 

(New City, NY) - Supervisor Alexander J. Gromack announced today that this winter's Coats for Kids Program generated approximately 1000 coats. 

 

"For the 21st year in a row Rockland residents again opened their hearts to help those in need," said Supervisor Gromack.

 

The Coats for Kids Program started on November 8 and ran until December 17.  Thanks to media sponsors WHUD 100.7 and WRCR 1300AM, for those six weeks all of Rockland County heard the appeal for new and nearly new coats of all sizes.  Thanks to the Journal News and Patch.com for their articles as well.  

 

"In that time, not only coats but sweaters and clothes were brought into participating dry-cleaners, who cleaned the coats for free before being delivered to not-for-profit agencies around Rockland," stated Supervisor Gromack

 

Supervisor Gromack extends his many thanks and appreciation on behalf of over 1000 people who are warmer this winter because of the generosity of Rocklanders

 

"I wish to thank the dry cleaners, who donated their services by cleaning the coats, and the distribution centers who saw to it that the coats got to those in need," expressed Supervisor Gromack
