Canady’s Heating · Air · Plumbing wrapped up a successful Canady’s Coats for Kids drive on Wednesday, January 4 by delivering more than 1,000 coats to the United Way of the Coastal Empire. This is the third year that Canady’s Coats for Kids has partnered with the United Way of the Coastal Empire to collect donations of new, unused coats for children aging from infant to 17 years old in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, and Liberty counties.
“We appreciate Canady’s continuing to partner with the United Way to provide coats to children in need within our service area,” said Brynn Grant, president and CEO of the United Way of the Coastal Empire. “There is still more cold weather headed our way and if anyone in our service area needs a coat or other services, we ask that they call ‘211’ so that we can help them get what they need.”
“We appreciate the generosity of everyone in the community,” Fred Canady, founder of Canady’s Heating · Air · Plumbing, said. “No child should ever go without a coat and it was so special that people went out and bought new coats to help children in need. Since we began this effort three years ago, we have been able to help thousands of children in our area.”
The Canady’s Coats for Kids campaign began on November 28, 2022 and ran through January 2, 2023. Plans are underway for the Fourth Annual Canady’s Coats Campaign later this year.
