Thank You For Donating at our Coat Drive!
- Posted on: Jan 30 2014
In December, Dr. Flax, a dentist in Atlanta, and our team had the wonderful opportunity to host a holiday coat drive by partnering with One Warm Coat, an organization that provides free coats to anyone in need of one.
Thank you to everyone who donated their gently used or new coats at out Holiday Coat Drive. Thanks to your generous donations, we were able to give 35 coats!
The Need for Warm Coats
Adults and children cannot work and learn effectively when their body temperature drops. In fact, “Health experts report that even a 2-degree drop in body temperature results in reduced heart rate, loss of coordination, and confusion.”
Something as simple as a warm coat can make all the difference to help our community live healthily and happily.
