Everyone Can have a warm coat this winter!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Keller Williams Realty

Five years ago after many years of being in real estate, I wanted to find a way to give back to the community that helped make me so successful.  This year marks our 5th Annual Coat the Community Fundraiser. With the help of many sponsors including the Salvation Army, County Market grocery store, WCIA news and 92.5 The Chief radio station each year we gather to collect as many gently used coats as possible to donate back to our city of Champaign.  The Salvation army is always there with their hot coffee and donuts helping us sort through the many coats and then with the distribution afterwords.  In October 2008 we collected close to 1000 coats and we hope to surpass that amount this year.   

Information for the 5th Annual Coat the Community:

Sponsored by Scott Bechtel & The Bechtel Group

Saturday, October 17th, 2009 * 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon

Location: County Market at Kirby Ave and Duncan Rd, Champaign

There are many people in this community that will appreciate your donation!  Please save your extra coats and help keep a family warm this winter.

For anyone donating coats this October you also have a chance to win gift certificates from Buffalo Wild Wings, Monica's Pizza, and County Market grocery store.

That is a fabulous cause.  Here in Austin, we do Coats for Kids with an annual drive to collect as many coats for the kids who can't afford one.  It is a great success, glad to see others joining in.

That is great! Ever since the first year we did this we have been amazed at the generosity of our community. We look forward to a great event this October.  Hope your event goes well too.
