Join Us In Giving The Gift Of Warmth This Season
We’re partnering again with United Way of Northern New Jersey, the New Jersey Herald, and several local businesses and human service agencies for the annual Gift of Warmth new coat drive, seeking donations of winter apparel for Sussex County families in need.
Drop off coats and other winter apparel, which must be new, at Team Nest Builder’s Realty Executives Sparta office (54 Woodport Road in Sparta) or more than a dozen additional locations for the drive, running now through December 7. Once collected, the items will benefit individuals in need this winter season.
Approximately 15 agencies in the area -- including Birth Haven, DASI, Family Promise of Sussex County, Ginnie's House, NORWESCAP, Project Self-Sufficiency and Samaritan Inn -- are beneficiaries of the coat drive.
"As in previous years, we are counting on Sussex County to help us provide struggling neighbors with the gift of a winter coat this year," said John Franklin, chief executive officer for United Way of Northern New Jersey. "As our recent ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) report indicates, there are nearly 15,000 ALICE and poverty-level households in Sussex County who are living paycheck to paycheck.
"When these families are trying to decide between paying for the heat or a car repair, the cost of a winter coat often doesn't make it into the equation."
Drop-off sites for the coat drive are:
Realty Executives, 54 Woodport Road, Sparta
First Hope Bank, all branches
SB One Bank, all Sussex County branches
Lakeland Bank, all Sussex County branches
