MORTON GROVE, Ill., Jan. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Partnership Financial Credit Union (PFCU) hosted a coat drive to collect clean, gently worn or new, winter coats between November 15, 2019 and January 15, 2020. Our members and area residents were invited to make a difference in their local communities by donating to the coat drive and helping PFCU reach their goal of collecting coats for those in need.
"The generosity of our members was overwhelming. We even had a member donate bags of toys as well as coats. There are too many Americans living in poverty and struggling to pay their bills and support their families, they are often unable to afford to purchase winter coats. A program like this gets coats to those in need. Everything we collected at our four offices will be distributed in our communities to help our neighbors stay safe and warm this winter," said Betty Fallos, Manager of Business Development at PFCU.
We want to thank those who donated, because of their generosity, we collected 64 coats from our four locations in Barrington, Evanston, Des Plaines and Morton Grove. The coats were donated to the following organizations:
- District 69 Community School Initiative
- Niles Township Clothing Closet
- Des Plaines Self Help Clothing Pantry
- Barrington Giving Day
