McCOLLY Charities Announces October Coat Drive

October 1, 2018 – SHARE THE GIFT OF WARMTH! Here is your opportunity to make sure that nobody goes without such a basic necessity as a coat this winter.

McColly Real Estate, on behalf of the McColly Charities, is sponsoring a Coat Drive beginning on October 15, 2018 and will continue through November 15, 2018.

All McColly Real Estate and McColly Bennett Real Estate offices throughout Northwest Indiana, Chicago Southland & Central Illinois are collecting clean, gently used coats. Coats of all shapes and sizes are welcome.

McColly Charities has made donating a coat simple. Just bring your clean, gently used coats and jackets to any McColly Companies office during the collection. (For a list of collection sites, please go to www.mccolly.com, under the Find an Agent / Office tab.) McColly Charities will take care of the rest. All donated coats will be given to the local Salvation Army for distribution to local people in need.

Over the past 40+ years, McColly Real Estate has annually contributed to the March of Dimes, American Cancer Society, Salvation Army, American Heart Association and the Special Olympics of Illinois, to name just a few great causes. In 2011, McColly Real Estate formally established the McColly Charities to benefit families in need in the local communities that McColly Companies serves.

McColly Charities sponsors charity drives throughout the year. Pantries / charities who’d like to be considered for our current list of benefactors, please fill out the online application at McCollyCharities.org. Please include detailed information in terms of pantry/charity name, areas served; contact person and hours open for donation deliveries.
