Driving The Cold Away Keeps Kids Warm In The Greater Philadelphia Area


Today I'd like to give a local shout-out to a Philadelphia-area program that deserves a signal boost.

Since 2008, the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation's Driving Away the Cold program has given the gift of warmth and confidence to more than 220,000 disadvantaged children. The program provides new coats to underprivileged children who would otherwise not have them.

They partner up with Operation Warm and the coats are distributed through more than 100 different social services agencies, shelters, school districts, regional YMCAs, and more. These non-profit partners identify the children who will benefit most from this gift and distribute the coats in a responsible manner.

Donations are accepted at numerous car dealerships throughout the Philly area (and suburbs), and you can also create your own fundraising page if you'd like to add to their effort.

Here's a list of dealerships collecting coats in the greater Philadelphia area

It's getting cold out there, folks. Let's show the warmth of human kindness to some kids who really need it. Stop by a dealership and make your donation today!
