Resurgens Orthopaedics Launches 12th Annual Coat Drive to Benefit Shelters Across the Atlanta Area
Donations Accepted through Nov. 5th at All 24 Resurgens Orthopaedics Locations
Resurgens Orthopaedics invites the Atlanta community to Share the Warmth this winter with its 12th annual coat drive. The coat drive is open now and will run through Nov 5. Donations of new or gently used coats and blankets will be accepted at any of Resurgens' 24 locations throughout Metro Atlanta. The coats will be donated to domestic violence and homeless shelters across the Atlanta area. As a safety measure this year, Resurgens Orthopaedics asks that all donations be cleaned according to manufacturers' specifications and bagged individually before drop off.
The coat drive started as a small, local initiative in 2009 by Resurgens Orthopaedics' Dr. Gary W. Stewart, who wanted to give back to the community around the holidays. It has grown over the years to become a practice-wide effort, with all 24 Resurgens Orthopaedics locations participating.
"This year more than ever, we are pleased to offer our neighbors in need coats and blankets to keep them warm during the winter months" said Alex Bateman Resurgens Orthopaedics CEO. "As many people struggle with lower income due to the pandemic, we hope that we can help them feel some relief and let them know that we care about their well-being and that their neighbors do as well."
"What started out as a small, one location coat drive has evolved over the years into a practice-wide effort that involves all 24 Resurgens Orthopaedics locations" said Dr. Gary W. Stewart, Resurgens Orthopaedics physician. "This year, we invite everyone who is able to donate to stop by one of our locations to make a donation and feel confident that we have safety precautions in place to keep them safe. The local shelters who receive and distribute the coats and blankets do wonderful work and it is an honor to help them in this way each year."
Donations can be dropped off at any of the 24 Resurgens locations in Acworth, Austell, Canton, Covington, Cumming, Decatur, Douglasville, Fayetteville, Griffin, Johns Creek, Kennesaw, Lawrenceville, Marietta, McDonough, Midtown, Morrow, Newnan, Roswell, Snellville, St. Joseph's (serving Sandy Springs, Perimeter, Brookhaven, Buckhead), Vinings, West Cobb, Windy Hill and Woodstock.
