Market USA recently partnered with One Warm Coat to hold a coat drive at the Laurel and Landover branches for children and adults in need of warmth.
There is a real need for coats in our local community, and One Warm Coat’s program made it easy for the credit union to make a difference and spread much needed warmth. We donated 117 coats to Sarah’s House, a homeless shelter located in Ft. Meade, MD. This was made possible due to our members, staff and Wren Rickenbrode, a student at Mater Amoris Montessori School, who collected 44 coats at her school.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of gently worn coats are distributed across North America to children, women and men in need through One Warm Coat’s Coat Drive program. “We are so grateful for our wonderful partners like Market USA. We are thrilled so many people came together to provide warmth for their neighbors in need and are thankful to everyone who donated!” said One Warm Coat President and CEO Jennifer Stockard.
