2nd Annual “Focus on Community” Coat Drive
Sponsored by Carolina Ophthalmology and First Citizens Bank
DID YOU KNOW?
There are nearly 50 million Americans currently living in poverty and struggling to provide a warm coat for themselves or their families. One Warm Coat’s program helps us keep all of the coats we collect in this community, which will make a big difference for our neighbors who need a coat,” said Dr. Clayton Bryan, President of Carolina Ophthalmology.
YOU CAN HELP!
Each year, hundreds of thousands of gently worn coats are distributed across North America to children, women and men in need through One Warm Coat’s Coat Drive program. “We are so grateful for our partners like Carolina Ophthalmology and First Citizens Bank! It is because of our incredible volunteers that we have been around for 25 years, helping get coats to our neighbors who need them. Thanks to Carolina Ophthalmology and First Citizens Bank’s efforts, many people in this community will have a much warmer winter,” commented Jennifer Stockard, President and Chief Executive Officer of One Warm Coat®.
