Bring your new or “gently used” winter coat(s) to the EPX offices, Neumann-Goretti High School Room 217 on SATURDAY January 11, 2014. Drop off anytime between 12-4pm.

The Greater Philadelphia region is a cold place to be during the winter, especially if you do not have a warm coat.
Be part of the Greater Philadelphia Cares 17th Annual Winter Coat Drive.
Last year over 130 businesses, civic groups and individuals collected 6000 new and gently used coats that were distributed throughout the region…and EPX donated 79!
Every year, thousands of men, women, and children in the Greater Philadelphia region live through the cold winter season without a coat to keep warm. You may help provide them with this basic necessity. This event is a reminder that there are thousands of people whose only holiday wish is a warm coat for their children, parents, or themselves.
