Chamber Coat Closet Committee (Picture/logo)
The Chamber Coat Closet program has helped provide warmth for those in need for 10 years. New and gently used coats are collected at Chamber member locations throughout Sampson County. Coats are then sorted by volunteers and dispersed through a valuable partnership between the Chamber, Sampson County DSS, Sampson County Partnership for Children, Sampson County Schools, Clinton City Schools, Telamon Headstart and Sampson County Schools Migrant Education Program.
It is the goal of the Chamber Coat Closet Committee to meet the needs of families in Sampson County who are not financially able to provide warm coats for themselves and their children. The Chamber Coat Closet program offers a unique marketing benefit to Chamber members through sponsorship of coat collection boxes, newspaper and billboard advertisements.
Marketing for this program begins each September and runs through November. Join us in this effort to keep Sampson County warm. The Chamber Coat Closet Committee meets monthly beginning in August and ending in December.
