KWB Chartered Accountants is proud to support our December charity, Coats for Kids and Families.
We have decided to not only support this charity with the monthly amount we collect from any staff member who wants to wear jeans on certain designated days, but have also decided to collect winter wear for kids and adults.
We will be collecting all forms of winter wear in our office, such as, but not limited to: men’s winter coats, woman’s winter coats, children’s winter coats, toques/ mitts and scarves – adult and children’s sizes, snow pants- adult and children’s sizes, winter boots, insulated work wear – men’s and woman’s, and insulated work boots.
In 2015 -7,790 coats were distributed
As per their website http://coatsforkidsandfamilies.ca/ : “Coats for Kids and Families is a United Way initiative that began in 1992 due to overwhelming requests from families and individuals with limited resources in need of winter jackets. Many families continue to deal with sharply rising living expenses and simply don’t have the means to purchase the clothing needed to stay warm during Alberta’s harsh winters. The most vulnerable among them are children.
In 2015 -7,790 coats were distributed.” We hope you can join us in this great cause by dropping off your gently used winter wear to our office located at 9771-54 Avenue, Edmonton, before January 13, 2017. Thank you in advance for your support of this charity..
