Youngest donor gives a coat to help those in need

By Beth Gibson on October 18, 2017

Brandt and his mom, Shannon, dropping off his outgrown coat at GibsonSingleton's office.

Brandt Buchler, 2, came in this week with his mom, Shannon Pratt, to donate a coat he had outgrown. His gift was the 71st coat in our 2017 Fall Coat Drive! We always need children’s coats because kids grow so quickly that it’s hard for many parents to keep up. Thank you, Brandt and Shannon, for being so generous.

As a reminder, our annual Fall Coat Drive goes through December 22. We invite you to drop off new or used coats from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, at our office in Hayes, Virginia.

We are once again working with the Salvation Army, the Gloucester United for Emergency Shelter Team (GUEST), and the Hampton Veterans Administration Medical Center to distribute every single coat donated to people in need in our community.

If you donate a coat, you’ll receive a free car phone charger, ice scraper, or Christmas ornament as our way of thanking you. You can also register for drawings to win a road safety kit or a CD from The Ballast Band. Drawings will be held throughout the drive.
