Annual Food and Coat Drive
Ends 3 PM This Friday, December 9

Holiday Coat and Food Drive
Please help! Gather items from your closet and your food pantry. Ask your family, neighbors, and office mates if they have a non-used coat or jacket for "Coats for the Homeless." Add a few extra non-perishable food items when shopping.

Donated food items must be non-perishable. Cans or boxes of veggies, beans, canned meats, cereals, baby food, pasta or any non-perishable food item will bring joy to someone feeling hunger.

Please place collection boxes in your Real Estate Offices, then deliver all collected items to PGCAR by 3 pm Friday. Coats will be donated to Mission of Love. Food will be donated to the Public Safety Assistance Program of Prince George's County and assembled into food baskets.

Remember! Bring your donations to PGCAR by 3 pm this Friday, December 9!

Don't be shy. Be recognized for your efforts on the PGCAR Website or Facebook Page, while encouraging others to also donate and snap photos. Please email a photo of your office's donations to Erica@pgcar.com, and we will post it!!
