“Everyone who thinks Arizona is warm all the time is wrong. It gets darn cold at night,” Deary says. “For some, having a warm coat will be the best and only Christmas present they may get this year so I’m honored to help in any way that I can. "
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 25, 2013
1st Impressions Truck Lettering, a car wrap shop in Phoenix, collected 32 coats to try and make those in need warmer this winter. It has been freezing and in the high 20’s the past few nights in Phoenix and the surrounding area.
For those in the local community that are less fortunate, it is very difficult to make ends meet and have the necessities to get by. Among these needs are clothing to get through the cold winter, which prompted 1st Impressions to hold its First Annual Coat Drive.
1st Impressions owner Dan Deary collected coats for weeks and decided to reach out to his customers, friends, family members and vendors to ask for additional donations.
“Everyone who thinks Arizona is warm all the time is wrong. It gets darn cold at night,” Deary says. “For some, having a warm coat will be the best and only Christmas present they may get this year so I’m honored to help in any way that I can. It’s very rewarding to be able do even a small part to help those most in need and it’s a good feeling to see the folks really step up to help us in our effort — 32 people won’t worry as much about the cold weather this winter.”
1st Impressions would like to extend special thanks to all their vendors, friends and customers who helped, especially Jaime Carpenter and staff at Phoenix based Amurvel Physical Therapy who accounted for almost 50% of the coats collected.
The blankets were donated to Saint Vincent De Paul for distribution to the most needy. This was the first year of the drive and 1st Impressions expects to have a much larger collection next year.
