ProEnergy Consultants of Fox Valley partnered up with national charity One Warm Coat this past holiday season and has been actively collecting coats to be given out locally to those in need. The goal of collecting at least 200 coats will wrap up January 21st when ProEnergy will hand them off to Wayside Cross in Aurora for local distribution.
“We are proud to partner up with this national organization because they allow us to give back to those in need right here in our community. Even though this first coat drive ends on January 21st, we will continue to collect coats year-round so that next year we can give away even more,” said Jerry Needham, Owner of ProEnergy Consultants.
One Warm Coat, based in San Francisco, began collecting coats in 1992 with a Thanksgiving weekend coat drive. Since that initial event, the organization has gone national with the goal of creating a lifestyle for American families where it becomes habit to donate the coats they no longer need. So far they have distributed close to three million coats free of charge.
Sherri Woods, President and National Coordinator for One Warm Coat, explained that with the continued increase in the number of homeless and natural disasters occurring throughout America, basic needs such as a warm coat have unfortunately become a luxury for many.
ProEnergy Consultants is an energy audit company that strives to save homeowners and businesses money, energy and the environment. Through their use of thermal imaging they are able to scientifically identify where energy is happening and provide a comprehensive report showing where to make changes to increase energy efficiency.
Jerry knows firsthand the frustration of being in a home where one room is hot and another is cold. “We don’t guess” is their company motto and they are so confident in their results that all work is 100% guaranteed.
