Collection Bins for Warm Winter Items Staged at Tapper’s and Morgan Stanley Locations Throughout Metro Area – New Online Component Will Help Collect Cash for New Coats
Chilly fall days and cold evenings have arrived in southeastern Michigan. For those who are challenged to meet basic needs, a winter coat is an unaffordable luxury. Tapper’s Diamonds & Fine Jewelry seeks to help local residents stay warm this winter by hosting its 22nd annual Coat Drive now through Nov. 18.
Tapper’s, in affiliation with Morgan Stanley, will accept gently used or new coats, hats, mittens and blankets, as well as, cash donations for new coats at locations throughout the metro area.
“We’re excited to team up with Morgan Stanley this year and together expect to provide more than 2,500 coats for those in need,” says Steven Tapper, custom designer and vice president of Tapper’s Diamonds & Fine Jewelry. “The gift of warmth and comfort has more meaning and value than we can imagine. We urge everyone to join us in this community effort that will change lives.”
Tapper’s will also collect funds online at http://www.gofundme.com/tapperscoatdrive. Cash donations raised here and at all Tapper’s and Morgan Stanley locations will go toward the purchase of brand-new coats. A $20 donation will provide a child with a coat and gloves.
Coats and warm winter items in all shapes are sizes are welcome. Tapper’s handles distributing winter items, free of charge, directly to local residents in need and the organizations that support them. It is estimated the Tapper’s coat drive has provided more than 38,200 winter items to metro-Detroit area families throughout the years.
