Cookies for Coats & Coats for Kids Scholarship

Posted by: Donnell Insurance | Posted on: January 29th, 2016 | 0 Comments

Thanks to your generosity we had another amazing year for our Cookies for Coats & Coats for Kids Campaign ! In 2008 Donnell Insurance initiated the Cookies for Coats campaign. If you brought in a gently used coat, we give you a delicious box of cookies. With the success of that campaign we started our Coats for Kids Scholarship. The high schools collect gently used coats and in turn we offer every participating high school in Burlington $1,000 Scholarship to a graduating student.

This year we donated 1,263 coats to the Salvation Army and the Compassion Society and cash donations amounting to $13,470.  We are proud to announce the High Schools that have qualified for the 2016 $1,000 Coats for Kids Scholarships:

Aldershot High School
Assumption High School
Burlington Central High School
Corpus Christi High School
Dr. Frank J. Hayden High School
Lester B. Pearson High School
M.M. Robinson High School
Nelson High School

Since inception in 2008, we are proud to say we have collected over 5,000 coats, cash donations of over $43,000 and awarded $21,000 in Scholarships.
