Last year the 2009 Coats for Kids Century 21 M&M Grand Prize Winner was Osborn School in Turlock – Mrs. Mezzapesa’s classroom, and Winner of 2nd Prize was Stella Brockman Elementary School in Manteca, CA.
During the Coats for Kids 2009 Campaign we had many heart warming stories of ‘kids helping kids’ by donating coats:
Kathleen Borbon, (11/13/2009) of the Century 21 M & M Real Estate Stockton office, said that at Galt High School, the students in her daughter’s English and Drama classes were collecting coats.
The Clovis office collected 470 Coats for Kids as of today (12/04/2009), most of them donated by children in the Clovis area. Until December 11, 2009, each child that donated a coat received a “Free Movie Night”.
As of Wednesday (12/16/2009), Marya Pimentel in the Modesto office noted a coat count of 614 with at least 160 coats coming from Ricardo Jimenez’ daughter Mikaela’s sixth grade class hoping to win the drawing so that her class could take a field trip.
Dana Howell in the Los Banos office took the Coats for Kids Campaign to the streets (literally), marching in the Christmas parade pulling carts full of coats through downtown Los Banos.
On December 18th, 2009 Dana says, “What really pulled the heart strings was watching four children take off their personal coats and drop them into the carts—then run off without waiting for recognition or reward.”
And now the 2010 Coats for Kids Campaign is here, and we have 28 more days to collect 10,000 new or gently used coats. With that in mind, Century 21 M&M is kicking off another contest. This years contest focuses on classrooms:
2010 Century 21 M&M Coats for Kids $500.00 Grand Prize to the classroom that donates the largest number of coats
2010 Century 21 M&M Coats for Kids $100.00 2nd Prize goes to the classroom that donates the second largest number of coats.
Century 21 M&M looks forward to partnering with classrooms throughout Northern California. Teachers, if you are interested in participating in this Classroom contest, contact the Sales Manager for at any Century 21 M&M office, and we will be happy to arrange pick-up of your Coats for Kids.
