ABNB is proud to announce another successful Coat Drive in 2016, collecting over 230 children and adult sized coats. This year, Charles Black with 95-7 R&B and the Salvation Army partnered with ABNB on the 'One Warm Coat' drive that ran from November 1 through December 2, 2016. Coats were collected at all ABNB locations through member and employee donations.
“It is overwhelming to see the corporate office hallway filled with so many coats donated from both members and employees who are so invested in giving back to the community. These coats are donated by varying walks of life, all coming from diverse places to care for our own Hampton Roads neighbors in need. It’s that kind of generosity year after year that makes this coat drive such a successful mission!” says ABNB Marketing Manager, Melissa Rose.
ABNB has been committed to helping those in need in the Hampton Roads community stay warm during the winter months. Since this campaign started over a decade ago, more than 2,700 coats have been donated.
