While the need for warm coats has never been greater, it can also be rather easy to meet this vital need in our community. Patrick Parker Realty – a Bradley Beach based boutique real estate brokerage serving Eastern Monmouth County and the Jersey Shore – invites area residents to join them in an effort to ensure that no one goes without a warm coat this winter.
Patrick Parker Realty is holding their 2nd Annual One Warm Coat Drive and will be collecting clean and gently used warm coats and, in partnership with the national One Warm Coat non-profit organization, will distribute the coats directly to children and adults in need.
“The response to our 2014 One Warm Coat Drive was overwhelming,” says Patrick Parker, Owner and Broker of Record.
“Equally important was the message of caring that the community has sent to our neighbors in need. Bradley Beach and surrounding Shore residents turned out in a collective effort to donate more than 250 coats last year. We are proud to again be partnering with the One Warm Coat® organization.” continues Parker.
Patrick Parker Realty invites you to bring your clean, gently used coats and jackets to their new location at 523 Main Street in Bradley Beach beginning Nov. 16. Donations can be made 7 days a week between the hours of 10am and 3pm.
“We are hoping that by providing drop-off times 7 days per week we can help our busy neighbors by offering greater availability for donating. We are extending our coat drive past the holiday season, through January 30, 2016, after the holiday season as last year we found many donations came in after new coats were received as holiday gifts,” says Parker.
