ATLANTA, Nov. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Storage Post Self Storage is once again supporting New York Cares in its 25th Annual Coat Drive. Storage Post's New York storage facilities will act as public collection sites where local groups and community members can drop off donations. In addition to assisting with public donations, Storage Post provides a delivery service to the New York Cares warehouse from its locations.
This is the third year the company has joined the coat drive effort to provide thousands of New Yorkers with warm coats. Accepted donations are new coats or gently-used, freshly-laundered coats of all sizes.
The coat drive launched on November 12, 2013 and continues until February 7, 2014, showcasing the region's generosity and goodwill in preparation for Super Bowl XLVIII. Storage Post has 17 convenient New York locations ready to accept coat donations, including stores in the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Long Island.
"We look forward to this event every year because we believe in being a good neighbor and helping our communities as much as possible. This coat drive is so important to the local people in need, especially after Hurricane Sandy left so many families without homes last year," said Pete Gioiello, Storage Post's vice president of operations. "We encourage our customers, friends and families to donate to the New York Cares Coat Drive."
Storage Post is known for its frequent participation in community events and local outreach programs. The company's leadership encourages employees to take initiative in charitable giving and neighborhood assistance.
