F.H. Furr kicked off the 2017 Winter Season with our 4th annual Keep ‘Em Warm Coat Drive! We partnered with the amazing people at Volunteer Prince William once again in order to provide coats to children in need, with the focus being on kids ages 12 and under. By the end of the coat drive, we filled Volunteer Prince William’s office to the ceiling with new and gently used jackets!
Volunteer Prince William was able to provide several collection boxes in all the local Prince William County Library locations. Additionally, our Cares Team joined forces with Cub Scout Pack 1922 out of Linton Hall School in Bristow to collect as many jackets as possible for local kids in need of warmth!
With the joint efforts of Volunteer Prince William, the boys from Pack 1922 and F.H. Furr’s own employees, the Keep ‘Em Warm Coat Drive amassed over 400 jackets and $2,000 to go towards giving children a warm winter this year and, hopefully, for many to come.
Join us again next year for our annual coat drive and help us surpass all the goodness we did in 2017!
