ATLANTA, Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Storage Post Self Storage has joined efforts with New York Cares to bring coats to 100,000 New Yorkers in need for New York Cares' 23rd Annual Coat Drive. Each of Storage Post's New York storage facilities are official drop-off locations for coat donations, which will be collected from November 15, 2011 to December 31, 2011.
Customers and members of the community are encouraged to donate gently-used, freshly-laundered coats that are in good condition. The program's goal for this holiday season is to provide 100,000 warm coats to families and individuals in need. Storage Post has 12 convenient New York locations, including the boroughs of Queens, Brooklyn, Westchester and the Bronx.
"When we discovered New York Cares' cause – providing coats to at-risk New Yorkers – we jumped at the chance to get involved. We believe Storage Post, with its many drop-off locations in the area, can make a difference in this campaign to spread warmth," commented Jack Chaney, chief operations officer at Storage Post. "We are dedicated to helping our neighbors within the communities we serve."
Storage Post is known for its frequent participation in community events and local outreach programs. The company's executive management encourages and motivates employees to take initiative in charitable giving and neighborhood assistance.
With its storage capacity and moving trucks, Storage Post will also act as a drop-off hub and delivery service for other civic groups participating in the collection. The New York Cares Coat Drive will only accept donated coats. If you have other items that can help someone stay warm this season, please research additional drives for winter accessories.
