Beginning Tuesday, November 29th, on #givingtuesday through January 2023, Peterson Insurance will be actively collecting much-needed blankets and warm, new or slightly used coats for children and adults with an emphasis on girls' coats size 2t - 6x. This year, our blanket and coat drive is in partnership with the ABCCM organization and we couldn't be more hopeful.
How Can You Help?
Come by our Peterson Insurance Group business office in Weaverville, Monday - Friday anytime between 9am - 5pm. We will have a designated container to collect your items that will then be donated to the wonderful folks at ABCCM who are doing amazing work for those in desperate need.
The Need is Great This Year!
Many of our neighbors live paycheck to paycheck, making difficult choices on a daily basis between rent, utilities, food, health care, daycare and so much more. ABCCM is ministering to families in crisis, so won't you join us in helping create warmth and security for these children and adults?
