The “Coats for Kids” Coat Drive benefits the children at The Home for Little Wanderers, “one of the oldest welfare agencies in the nation and the largest in New England.” The goal of this volunteer effort, organized by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares, a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization operated by Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, is to collect 750 new coats for the children of The Home. Additional sponsors of the drive include Blanchard Press, Inc., Road Warrior Moving and Storage, and Rugged Bear.
LLNE members are invited to participate in this event, either individually or as a group. Volunteers may personally drop off their new coat donations at one of the participating Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage or Rugged Bear store locations on or before December 15, 2005. Tax-deductible donations, made payable by check to Coldwell Banker Cares, can be mailed directly to Coldwell Banker Residential Mortgage, Attn: Coats for Kids Drive, 277 Dartmouth Street, Boston, MA 02116. Please download and print a “Coats for Kids” Coat Drive brochure to send along with your payment by December 15th. Alternatively, you may also contact Jennifer Kessler, Andrea Rasmussen, Suzanne Hoey or Michelle Pearse, LLNE Service Committee members who have volunteered to answer questions and host collection sites for LLNE donations.
