190 coats were collected for Newark schoolchildren and will be handed over at an exciting, memorable event at company headquarters on December 19th, Signature Car Collection reports
Newark, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/22/2014 -- Signature Car Collection, a leading exotic car rental service, announced the success of the company's recent charity coat collection drive. On November 30th, along with volunteers and partner organizations, Signature Car Collection helped to collect 190 coats that will be distributed to local schoolchildren at a special event to be held on December 19th. At that time, students will pick up their donated coats at the Signature Car Collection headquarters, where they will be greeted by Santa Claus and other very special guests and have the unique opportunity of viewing the company's impressive stable of high-end, exotic cars from makers like Ferrari and Lamborghini.
"We're proud to announce that our coat collection drive on November 30th was a huge success," Signature Car Collection representative and event organizer Jules Rha said, "With plenty of greatly appreciated help, we gathered 190 coats that will make a big difference to many grateful children in Newark. The upcoming December 19th event where the coats will be distributed is going to be a truly memorable occasion for all who attend."
Looking for a special way to contribute back to the community and celebrate the holiday spirit of giving, Signature Car Collection employees set upon the idea of a coat donation drive that would provide much-needed winter clothing to local schoolchildren. With only a week's preparation, Signature Car Collection representative Jules Rha took charge of the project, overseeing a process that pulled in community members, a number of local businesses, and Signature Car Collection clients.
The enthusiasm and generosity these participants showed yielded an impressive 190 warm winter coats through the collection drive itself, a total that exceeded even the organizers' ambitious goals. In addition to wanting to make a real difference to local schoolchildren by providing them with coats, the organizers of the coat drive also wanted to make the handing over of the donated items just as special to all involved.
Toward that end, a truly exciting and undoubtedly memorable event will be held at the Signature Car Collection headquarters at 60 Avenue A in Newark, starting at 9:30a.m. on December 19th. Students from the Abinton Avenue, Ann Street, Hawkins Street, Oliver Street, South Street, and Wilson Avenue schools of Newark will board buses, after which Newark police will give them official escorts as they make their way to the event location.
Once there, they will be greeted by a real-life Santa Claus and a special, surprise guest in the form of a major league sports team mascot, as well as many of the donors and others who participated in the coat drive. The children will then receive their coats and have the rare chance to view Signature Car's incredible collection of exotic vehicles from makers like Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren and more.
The Mayor of Newark, Ras Baraka, has also been invited to the event, and event organizers hope to see him in attendance along with Principal Sandra Marques, Ana Nata, and the staff of Hawkins Street School, in addition to many donors, participating local businesses, and others who wish to take part.
Allowing donors and donation-drive participants to watch and take part in this special event, Signature Car Collection representatives feel, will drive home the real, positive impact of their efforts, an experience that could reinforce their commitments to the Newark community.
For helping to make the coat drive such an impressive success, Signature Car Collection wishes to thank 631 Coatings, Car and Cafe of Bergen County, DeLeoClean Car Wash, Jeffrey Ford Gas Stations, Maserati of Bergen County, Powerhaus Performance, Puddle Car Wash, Raceline Models, Status Motoring, TeamSalamone, Tony's Tires, and Wide World Ferrari, as well as all others who contributed or helped out. Signature Car Collection also applauds Jules Rha's dedicated, highly effective leadership throughout the drive.
