The Matthew Wayne Wade Foundation donated fifty-five coats to contribute to the 2019 “Coats for Kids” drive, led by Debra Buchanan and in association with Avery Mills of One Hour Martinizing.

The MWW Foundation initially set up several drop off sites within the Martinsville Henry County area to collect coats.

Megan and Jason Harbour, of Harbour Towing & Recovery, and McCabe Memorial Baptist Church, aided with the mission and donated a substantial amount of the coats collected.

Through other donations, the MWW Foundation purchased additional coats for the drive. The MWW Foundation would like to thank everyone that donated and supported the Coats for Kids Drive this year. “We are so grateful that we are able to continue contributing to the drive each year in order to provide children in need coats to stay warm,” they said.

The MWW Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in the memory of Matthew Wayne Wade, has participated in the Coats for Kids drive since 2013. For more information or how to donate or become a supporter visit or on Facebook page at
