1st Annual Coat Drive was a Success

1st Annual Coat Drive was a huge success for Finders Keepers of Erie and the  Erie City Mission!

The goal of 100 gently used, warm coats was not only met but continued to climb to a total of 134! We are so pleased with the response we received from Erie that we will happily do it again next year! We teamed up with One Warm Coat and held the coat drive from October 10 – November 10 and donated them after closing on the that evening. WICU Channel 12 news station showed up to interview us about the coat drive and previewed our donation at 11 p.m.

We really wanted the community to get involved with donating to this great cause, so, we decided to give everyone that contributed, a $5 gift certificate for our shop. We had a total of $500 in gift certificates set aside and we were able to distribute all of them! We would like to thank all of the wonderful individuals and families who donated, especially those who donated more than one!! A huge thank you to everyone involved in helping , as we could not have done this without YOUR help! We love being a part of Erie’s loving community and owning a small business where we are able to give back. We ask that you please remember us again next year when the time comes to do it all again!

– Thank you, Jenn & Kathy
