HALL OF FAME RENAMES COAT DRIVE “COATS FOR CHESTER, PLUS” AND ADDS A DROP-OFF LOCATION IN PHILLY
The SEPA Hall of Fame is committed to do its part to mobilize the soccer community in helping needy people in our community. In the first eight years of our collection program, we have collected and distributed 13,960 coats to needy families in Chester, PA, home of the Philadelphia Union. Because of the growth of our program, we will be adding a new drop-off location in Philadelphia. Also receiving coats from us this year will be the St. Veronica Grade School, 6th & Tioga Streets. St. Veronica is the last surviving Catholic grade school in all of North Philadelphia.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
For two months this fall, from October 1st to November 30th, we will be collecting donated winter coats from throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania. In early December we will be delivering them to three social service organizations in Chester and the St. Veronica Grade School in Philadelphia, who will distribute them to needy families there. Members of the SEPA Soccer Hall of Fame, along with volunteers from various soccer organizations, will be handling the collecting and distributing of the coats.
HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE
Just gather any winter coats (infant, child or adult) that you will no longer be using. Then take those coats to the drop-off site listed below that is closest to you and we will do the rest. You may also drop off coats at a Philadelphia Union game in October (date listed below).
