December's Season of Celebrations and Sharing: Kinex Coat Drive

Real Estate Agent with Beringer Realty


Kinex Coat Drive

One thing I love about living here in Champaign-Urbana is that we have several good snowfalls each year, whereas in Virginia, where I spent my childhood, a good snowfall was a rarity. Yes, our winters here are quite beautiful, and temperatures stay below freezing for those few months.

Having a warm, winter coat is a necessity in this area but unfortunately it's not something that everyone can afford.

From now through December 12, Kinex Fitness Studio in Urbana is collecting coats and other warm winter gear to benefit Salt and Light, a local organization that distributes clothing and food to those in need.

Have things in your closet that you don't use anymore? Clean out the items in good condition that you simply aren't using and give them to someone who CAN use them!! Or if you're feeling especially generous, you can of course donate new items, too.

Kinex Fitness Studio is located at 2740 S. Philo Rd., Suite F, in Urbana and you can give them a call at (217) 344-6600 with questions!

The Details...

When: NOW through Dec. 12

What: Donated Coats and Winter Gear

Where: Kinex Fitness Studio, 2740 S. Philo Rd. Ste. F, Urbana

Why: Because it's the season of giving!

How: Only through your help and generosity! Donate today!!

I cannot even begin to imagine how horrible it would be not to have proper clothing during these cold Winter months!

Barbara-Jo, it's awful to think about, isn't it. There are several annual coat drives around here and I just hope that those who need the assistance get taken care of! Thanks for commenting.
