John Robert Powers is contributing to the Salvation Army’s Food and Coat Drive, and is encouraging others to do the same this holiday season.

Individuals who would like to help those in need in a special way this holiday season, can look to follow the performing arts academy, John Robert Powers in contributing to the Salvation Army’s Food and Coat Drive between now and New Year’s.

The Food and Coat Drive is an event that runs from Thanksgiving to New Year’s to collect and donate to people in need. John Robert Powers, a company that offers a great platform for performing arts, has been involved with the Salvation Army’s Food and Coat Drive for 12 years, in addition to continually making donations to the organization.

Overall, based on what the premiere performing arts academy did last year, the company expects to donate around 150-200 coats and more than 600 pounds of food. The company is doing this because its goal is to show and teach their client’s the gift of giving. Specifically, it would like to show young people that Christmas is not just about receiving gifts; rather, it is more meaningful to give to those who are less fortunate.

The performing arts company, whose website can be found at, got its start when the man behind the company -- John Robert Powers -- arrived in the Big Apple to pursue his dream of an acting career in the 1920s. In 1923, he launched the first agency focused on modeling. Then, he created the first school focused on performing arts development, which taught students social, acting, modeling, and executive skills.

Today, John Roberts Powers continues to promote the philosophy that set it apart decades ago: that no person is unattractive. For this reason, the company emphasizes that, “There is no such thing as an unattractive person, just some people who don’t know how to make the most of themselves,” as said by John Robert Powers himself. In other words, they should be natural, essentially embracing themselves.
