Resurgens Orthopaedics Holds 13th Annual Coat Drive
Donations Accepted through Nov. 19th at All 24 Resurgens Orthopaedics Locations
Atlanta-based Resurgens Orthopaedics, one of the largest orthopaedic practices in the country, invites the Atlanta community to Share the Warmth this winter with its 13th annual coat drive. The coat drive is open now and will run through Nov 19. Donations of new or gently used coats, scarves, hats, gloves 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.
"It is important for us to give back to the communities where we work and live" said Alex Bateman, Resurgens Orthopaedics CEO. "Our annual coat drive is one of the most important community outreaches we do all year, because it brings warmth and comfort to those in need and, hopefully, is also a reminder to them that the community around them cares about them and their well-being."
"The Resurgens Orthopaedics coat drive started in 2009 and has grown over the past 13 years to be a practice-wide effort that supports several different domestic violence and homeless shelters in the Atlanta area" said Dr. Gary Stewart. "These shelters do excellent work year-round, and it is wonderful to see how many people we are able to help each year with this simple, but vital initiative."
Donations can be dropped off at any of the 24 Resurgens locations in Acworth, Acworth Rehabilitation, Austell, Canton, Covington, Cumming, Decatur, Douglasville, Fayetteville, Griffin, Griffin Rehabilitation, Johns Creek, Kennesaw, Lawrenceville, Marietta, McDonough, Newnan, Roswell, Snellville, St. Joseph's (serving Sandy Springs, Perimeter, Brookhaven, Buckhead), Vinings, West Cobb, Windy Hill and Woodstock.
