“We like to give back to the community,” Donor, Don Seevers said. “That’s the reason why we do it. You know doing something nice for people that are less unfortunate.”
“We just feel good about it,” Terry Tavern, Co-owner, Mike Mohr said. “If you want to feel good about yourself take down $5 or $10 and give it to The Salvation Army. Tell them it’s for Coats for Kids. It makes you feel good.”
The funds raised will go towards The Salvation Army’s Women Auxiliary, Coats for Kids drive.
“This is great,” The Salvation Army, Women Auxiliary, president, Susan Stotts said. “We try to buy good coats for these kids and to be able have the money to do it is just so important.”
“To see the children come in and walk back out with a warm coat make them feel better and makes the community feel better,” The Salvation Army, Envoy, George Bates said. “The army couldn’t do the work we do without good people.”
The women’s auxiliary will continue to accept donations for winter coats. Thanks to the generosity of the community they were able to purchase almost 600 coats this year.
