Coats collected during the 28th annual “Coats for Kids” Drive will be donated to community organizations and schools to keep children in need warm this season.
Horsepasture District Supervisor, Debra Parsons Buchanan, has spearheaded the drive for twenty-eight years. The Matthew Wayne Wade Foundation (MWW), a local non-profit organization has participated in the drive since 2013 and made their annual contribution of coats Wednesday at One Hour Martinizing on Rives Road in Martinsville. Owned and operated by Avery Mills, One Hour Martinizing cleans each coat before they are distributed.
Debra Buchanan, Horsepasture District Supervisor, in association with Avery Mills, Owner of One Hour Martinizing, and The MWW Foundation would like to thank everyone that donated to and supported the 2023 “Coats for Kids” drive, and we look forward to the “Coats for Kids” Drive beginning next September 2024 and working to help keep kids warm.
