Bucks County Children And Youth Receives 180 New Winter Coats For Local Children And Families

November 19, 2014

Many of the children and families served by the Bucks County’s Children and Youth Social Services Agency (BCCYSSA), including those in foster care, will be protected from winter weather thanks in part to generous donations from two local area car dealerships.

The agency recently accepted two individual donations of new winter coats from Keystone Volvo and The Thompson Organization, both participants in the “Driving Away the Cold” campaign.  Representatives from both dealerships delivered coats in various sizes and colors to the BCCYSSA office in Furlong bringing the total donation to 180, including 72 from Keystone Volvo and 108 from The Thompson Organization, respectively.

Coordinated by the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation and Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia,  participating dealerships in the “Driving Away the Cold” campaign pledge to donate a brand new winter coat to a child in need for each vehicle sold during the month of September.

“More children in Bucks County will be kept warm this winter through the generous donation of winter coats by Keystone Volvo and the  Thompson Organization to the Bucks County Children and Youth Social Services Agency,” stated BCCYSSA Executive Director Lynne Rainey. 

Bucks County Children & Youth Social Services is the agency with official regulatory responsibility for ensuring the safety and well-being of children in Bucks County from birth through 18 years of age.  For additional information, visit www.BucksCounty.org.
