Jodi Moreno, News10 Promotion & Event Director, “You are all so wonderful!!!! I know there are many programs out there that you can participate in and we are so grateful you chose ours (News 10) and the Salvation Army’s. 4,600 coats is an outstanding number, especially for a first time!!”
Jesse Gibbs, Century 21 M & M Real Estate Business Development Department, says “We started out slow and I was a little worried with the goal (of 2500) I had set but once the momentum started, your offices never stopped right up to the very end….Wow team, this means we will touch lives in thousands of families this Holiday Season! Thank you all for what we together accomplished.”
Leslie Noll in the Clovis office says that the majority of their coats came from local Clovis schools; Cole Elementary, Lincoln Elementary and Liberty Elementary. Real Estate Agent Diann Savage, a former teacher, used her colleague contacts to
spear-head the campaign. The result was over 700 coats (from kids) for kids. Leslie states, “I am very proud of the efforts of the Century 21 M&M Real Estate office in Clovis, very proud of the community that joined in our efforts and thrilled that 927 children will be warmed with coats this Christmas.”
Jerilyn VonFlu, manager of the Madera office says “My husband mentioned the Coats for Kids campaign at his Lions breakfast and a gentleman stood up, took off his coat and donated it on the spot.” She further stated that a teacher in town, knowing that Century 21 M&M Real Estate was collecting Coats for Kids called the office needing seven coats, immediately, for children in her school without coats, and within one hour those children had coats. Jerilyn says “I am grateful for the generosity of One Hour Martinizing for cleaning all of the used coats and the Madera Parks and Recreation for donating twenty-three coats.”
John Melo says “Knowing the Century 21 M & M team the way Larry Matos and I do, we are not surprised at their greatness and their ability to help others. When we brought the Coats for Kids campaign up to our management team we reminded them that this year the need for Coats for Kids would be greater than ever. Overall everyone’s reaction was extremely supportive. ”
