Calling all credit unions! It's time to get the ball rolling for the 2015 Warners' Warm-Up coat drive. With your help, we can keep the city warm and toasty this winter. Each year, the St. Louis Chapter of Credit Unions teams up with First Things First, Kurt Warner’s charitable foundation that hosts the coat drive.
To participate, credit unions need to contact Sarah Rehkop via email by Thursday, September 10. The coat drive will take place from November 1-14. Your branches will serve as collection locations for coat donations. You can sell the coat cutouts for $1 each and display them in your branches. The proceeds from the sales of coat cutouts and monetary donations will be used by Kurt Warner’s charitable foundation, First Things First, to purchase coats for those in need.
Signage and large donation boxes will be provided. There will be a box decorating contest again this year. Have fun and get creative decorating the collection boxes--- at the end of the drive, the winning design will receive lunch, compliments of the St. Louis Chapter.
Please include the following information in your email:
- Designated point of contact for your credit union
- A list with the street address of each participating branch
- Number of collection boxes needed (one per branch)
- Number of posters needed (one per branch)
- Number of large flyers needed
- Number of coat cutouts needed
Rehkop will contact participating credit unions with supply order and pickup details in September. Typically, there is one pickup location in Missouri and one in Illinois.
If you have any additional questions, please contact Sarah Rehkop by email or phone at 636.720.2452.
