Warming communities…one coat at a time.
Courtice, Ontario, 24/10/2017 – One in seven people in Canada live in poverty. For these families and individuals, a warm coat is a budget extra they simply cannot afford. The Michael Baird Team invites Durham residents to make a difference in your neighbor’s lives by donating coats and dollars during our upcoming coat drive!
The Michael Baird Team is working with One Warm Coat to collect clean, gently used warm coats on November 12th between 12pm and 4pm at 3388 Trulls Rd., Courtice. The process is simple: you drop off your extra coat(s) our team takes care of the rest. All donated coats will be cleaned by Carriage Trade Cleaners free of charge and given to a local agency for distribution to local children and adults in need. Our goal is to collect 100 coats during our coat drive!
“For more than 20 years we have been working to provide a warm coat to anyone who needs one. We are so thankful for our many coat drive ambassadors, like The Michael Baird Real Estate Team who volunteer their time, resources and energy to help their neighbors in need. Together, we can reach our goal of warming one million people each winter, one community at a time!” commented Jennifer Stockard, President and Chief Executive Officer of One Warm Coat.
