PHILADELPHIA FREEDOM VALLEY YMCA TO DONATE 11,000 COATS TO CHILDREN IN NEED AS PART OF PHILADELPHIA AREA CAMPAIGN

Posted on: 10.10.2015

WHAT: The Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCAs are receiving 11,000 new coats as part of the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation’s Driving Away the Cold initiative which is donating over 42,000 new coats this year throughout the five-county Philadelphia area.

WHY: One in six children in Philadelphia lives in poverty. With these new coats, 11,000 youth in the greater Philadelphia community and their families will be relieved of the financial burden of purchasing new coats and children will be given confidence to play, learn and do more.
