Denver, Co (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
One thousand and one hundred Denver-area individuals received a new winter coat this past Saturday at the annual Highpoint Church Winter Coat Giveaway sponsored by Highpoint Church, Frazier Global Strategies and Jones International University® (JIU®). During the two hour event, brand new coats were distributed on a first come, first served basis to men, women and children in the Denver community. Held at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library in Aurora, Colorado, the giveaway was open to the public; no advanced reservations or registration required.
First organized in 2004, the Winter Coat Giveaway has grown from sixty coats given away in its first year to 1,100 coats in 2012. One hundred and fifty volunteers will facilitate the two hour event and help fit recipients with the appropriate sized coats. All coats are brand-new and were purchased in part by the event’s sponsors.
“We are deeply moved by the fact that many individuals in our urban community will suffer through the Colorado cold season without adequate winter clothing,” stated Gene Roncone, Lead Pastor of Highpoint Church. “With collaboration and partnerships, organizations can work together to meet community needs.”
Highpoint Church partnered with Frazier Global Strategies, a small, globally oriented, consulting and professional services business, and Jones International University® (JIU®), a Denver-based online university providing associate to doctorate level degree programs in the fields of Education and Business, to sponsor the 2012 Winter Coat Drive. Honorary sponsors include councilmembers Marsha Berzins and Sally Mounier.
“It is exciting to be a part of an event that supports so many people in our community,” stated Acting University President Tim Burke. “In just two hours’ time, we gave away enough coats to keep over 1000 people warm.”
Winter coats were distributed Saturday, November 10th from 2PM – 4PM at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library on 9898 East Colfax Ave., Aurora, CO. Coats were distributed on a first come, first served basis and only one coat was distributed per person present at the event.
