Everyone at WRP would like to give the Greater York community a heartfelt thanks for helping us make WRP Month of Giving a success! We loved visiting a new location with Stella the Trolley every Saturday between Thanksgiving and Christmas collecting coats and spreading holiday cheer. So many people stopped by to make a donation and take a photo with Santa. It's because of YOU that we collected 13 bags of new and gently worn coats to donate to York County Community Action Corporation.
Here's a photo of Troy Williams, owner of Williams Realty Partners, with Melinda Chamberlain of YCCAC.
A day after Troy dropped off the coats he received the following message from Melinda, "As of 11am today, we have distributed 28 coats and jackets. One pregnant woman came in wearing an old coat that does not fit her at all due to her growing belly. She walked out with two coats and was so thrilled. I have contacted a local church that runs a clothing "closet" that is interested in getting some of the coats to distribute to local residents. The teachers from Head Start were able to find coats and jackets for some of the kids in need. In just 24 hours, this event has been a huge success!"
It warms our hearts to know that dozens of people throughout the area will have a comfortable coat on their back during this cold New England winter. It's initiatives like this, that motivate our team to give back to the community that we truly love. The community that we live in, work in and many of us grew up in. We can't wait to begin planning WRP Month of Giving 2018!
Here are some highlights from this year:
