Every year Vanway, the transportation branch of American Training, holds their annual coat drive to collect men’s, women’s and children’s coats and jackets for those in need throughout the communities we serve and call home.
This year, we’ll be collecting now through Friday, January 5th. Last year we set a goal of 250 items and exceeded it, reaching 254 items. This year we’re going even bigger, with a goal of 300 items! That’s 300 people we can, together, keep warm this winter.
Where does it go?
We partner with Anton’s Cleaners who takes all of our donated items, professionally cleans them, then distributes them to community groups who can ensure they make it into the hands of those in need.
How can I help?
Donate! We are accepting donations at our Andover location (6 Campanelli Drive), Lowell location (150 Industrial Drive), our Wakefield location (107 Audubon Drive), and our LARE Chelsea location (100 Everett Ave # 8). If you need someone to pick-up your donation, call Robin at 978-685-2151, ext. 6822 for a pick up from one of our professional and courteous drivers. Spread the word! Share this link on social media and tell all your friends and family to do the same. The more people that know about it, the more donations will pour in, which means warmer communities for all!
Thank you all, in advance, for your donations, and for being part of our WOW! Magic by making a real difference in our communities and making Every Life Matter!
