Coats, Coats and More Coats!

The Vol State Employee Relations Committee says that its third annual Coat Drive has well exceeded goals. Faculty, staff and students donated more than 200 coats this year. That's well above the total of 100 collected last year and even beats the goal of 150 for this year. The drive also took in dozens of scarves, gloves and hats.

"Everyone has been so generous," said Renee Byrnes-Eades.

The project is carried out in conjunction with the ABC News Warm Coats and Warm Hearts campaign, a partnership with Burlington Coat Factory to provide warm coats to those in need during the winter months. The bags of coats were packed up last week and taken to the 100 Oaks Burlington Coat Factory. From there, the garments will be cleaned and sent to the Nashville Rescue Mission. Many folks will keep warmer this year thanks to your support!
