Builders Association Collects Coats For Kids

The Builders Association Coats for Kids project has wrapped up for another year.
According to a press release from the organization, last week the Builders Association Kosciusko Fulton Counties members delivered 404 coats to the 18 elementary schools in Kosciusko and Fulton counties.
Since 1996, the Builders Association members have donated and supported this cause, providing the money to purchase and deliver over 6,200 brand new coats to elementary schools. With this year’s purchases, the total amount spent has exceeded $134,000.
This year the coats were purchased at Meijer in Warsaw. The Warsaw Meijer management team gathered the coats and helped the Builders Association provide new coats for children in need. The assistance provided by the Warsaw Meijer is greatly appreciated, according to the press release. The Builders Association also “truly appreciates all of the sponsors, members, and volunteers that helped in providing warmth for children this year,” the release states.
