Donates over 7,800 winter garments to area families
A long-time supporter of the Coats For Kids Program with Anton’s Cleaners, Jordan’s Furniture began collecting gently-used and like-new coats in late 2015. Winter garments for all ages were gathered at all five Jordan’s locations, along with the Taunton Distribution Center. And after 3 long, cold months, Jordan’s generous customers delivered! Over 7,800 winter coats (7,871 to be exact) for all ages were collected by Jordan’s Furniture. Once cleaned (free of charge by Anton’s Cleaners), coats are distributed through the Coats for Kids Distribution Partners , including BU Medical Center Outreach Van Project, Catholic Charities, Community Giving Tree, Massachusetts Community Action Programs (MASSCAP), Mental Health Association of Greater Lowell, Middlesex Human Service Agency, Salvation Army, Taunton State Hospital, Wish Project and many more . “Jordan’s Furniture has supported Coats For Kids for a long time”, says Eliot Tatelman, Jordan’s President and CEO. “Each year, our wonderful customers hear the message and answer the call. I am continually amazed by the generosity of the people around us. To be able to contribute so many garments to families in our communities who are underserved is a great feeling.” Jordan’s Furniture is proud to be a significant contributor and partner with Coats For Kids, making the winter a bit warmer for many area families in-need.
