Temperatures in Colorado have been at record breaking lows this week. Never has there been a better time for Volume Nine to wrap up their first annual Coat Drive! Yesterday was the deadline to bring coats to the office before we took them to a donation location. We worked with Coats for Colorado and other local organizations around the U.S. to help provide to those in need during these frigid months. The goal is to provide warm winter coats to families and children who cannot afford them on their own.
For the last 3 weeks, Volume Nine has encouraged everyone to bring in coats of any size, shape or color to donate to non-profits. A “drop-off” location was set up in our break room, posters about the event were hung around the office and coats have been piling in ever since.
Overall, the coat drive was a huge success! The best part about this donation opportunity was that we were able to involve all of our employees including those who work remotely. Those of us in Colorado donated to Coats for Colorado and employees who work remotely donated their coats to a local charity of their choice. Across 4 states (AL, ID, NC & CO) Volume Nine employees donated a total of 41 coats!
Everyone at Volume Nine is grateful to have the opportunity to give back this holiday season and we are excited to continue to continue our involvement in local charities!
