Being cold takes the fun out of winter. Last winter was especially cold and nasty for us in the greater triangle region. Thinking about this may make you cringe and go searching for your winter jacket! For some children in our community, last winter was endured without the warmth of a winter coat. During a recent conversation with the coordinators of Durham’s John Avery Boys and Girls Club, Greg Greene and Arielle Williams told us; winter is especially hard for some of their club’s children. They tell us children show up to the center in the middle of winter with only a light jacket or a sweatshirt. Please join Advance Physical Therapy and Fleet Feet Sports in collecting contributions of new and/or gently used coats for children at Durham’s John Avery Boys and Girl club, (www.johnavery.org.) before this year’s wintery season knocks at our doorstep!
Here is how you can help. Bring in your donation of new or gently used coats for girls and boys ages 6- 18 years to any of our three collection locations. We will be collecting contributions from August 19th through October 15th. Please tell your family, friends and neighbors to donate and make a difference for a child this winter!
You can drop off coats at any of these three locations or give us a call for more information at (919) 932-7266:
