Saturday, November 29th
Community Empowerment Association, in collaboration with community partners, are sponsoring our annual winter clothing drive, collecting Coats, Boots, Hats, Gloves and Scarves for the disadvantaged children in our community.
Unfortunately, many children are not properly clothed for the winter months. Furthermore, the economic crisis in several of our underprivileged communities has disproportionately impacted our children and women living below the nationally known poverty line.
At this time, we are asking for your support and compassion along with your ability to give to this most worthy cause. In order to make this event successful, we are asking you to participate in this event by collecting these items within your organization and if you would like to be a part of distribution list of “Drop-Off” locations for this worthy cause, it would be greatly appreciated.
We will be organizing a list of volunteers to aid in the distribution of these items in our community on November 29, 2014. Subsequently, we are encouraging employees from your organizations to help distribute these items throughout the day during our annual Madden Football Contest and Basketball tournament on November 29, 2014.
We look forward to your support and participation in this annual event as we want to make this year successful for our community’s children.
To participate by being a designated Drop-Off location or to distribute these items to the families on the day of the Coat Drive, please contact (412) 371-3689 ext. 30
As always, thank you for your continued support!
