Coats For Kids Drive A Success!

We’d like to thank all our customers and employees for a very successful Coats For Kids drive this year!

In autumn, we asked everyone to drop off gently-used kids coats at Frank Ancona Honda. The coats were distributed to Coats For Kids, which aims to assist in the health and educational needs of children from low-income families by donating coats to keep them warm in cold weather.

Jason Heard, general sales manager at Frank Ancona Honda, said, “Our customers came through yet again with another very successful Coats For Kids donation drive at Frank Ancona Honda. We want to thank our customers and employees for their commitment to the children of Kansas City. Another special thanks goes to Pride Cleaners for getting all of the coats clean.”

The cutoff date for this year was Dec. 7, but the drive will run throughout the entirety of 2014 to prepare for next year’s winter needs.

Drop Off Donations at Frank Ancona Honda for Coats for Kids

For the third year in a row, we’re happy to announce that we are participating in Coats for Kids, a campaign which provides school children with coats and warm wear for school during the cold winter months. Anyone who wants to participate can drop off their coats at Frank Ancona Honda located at 1000 North Rogers Road in Olathe, Kan. The cutoff date for this year is Dec. 7, 2013, but the campaign will run throughout all of 2014 in order to prepare for next winter.

This is especially important for kids, as it is easier to attend, focus and participate in the educational process when nobody has to worry about something as simple as staying warm. Even better, Coats for Kids is designed to assist the health and educational needs of economically disadvantaged families who need the help the most.

This is a low impact means to make a difference; most families with children likely have coats that they have outgrown, and can probably find one that would be suitable for donation.
