Foundation Financial Group collects coats to keep Atlanta residents warm
Financial services company collects cold weather clothing to benefit those in need.
Founded in 1992 as a Thanksgiving weekend coat drive in San Francisco, One Warm Coat provides any person in need with a free coat. More than 1 million donated coats have reached thousands of communities across North America. Each coat drive aims to collect jackets for local needs. One Warm Coat hopes to become part of the American lifestyle, so that unneeded and retired coats will always warm someone in need.
"Supporting our community is part of our corporate DNA, and I am extremely proud of our employees whose creativity and generosity of spirit made this event a huge success," said Will Gordon, senior vice president of operations. "During these trying economic times, people truly need help and support. If we put a smile on even one person's face by providing a coat or jacket to keep them warm during the winter, then we truly made a difference."
In addition to the collection and donation of coats and jackets, Foundation Financial Group donated funds to One Warm Coat.
