CLEAR CHANNEL SOUTHERN COLORADO, THE PUEBLO AREA CHAPTER OF CREDIT UNIONS, LITTLE CAESARS and PUEBLO REGIONAL CENTER have teamed up to collect over 3,700 winter coats for the needy in the 12th Annual Credit Union Coat Drive.
The drive ran from DECEMBER through early JANUARY and asked listeners to donate coats at credit union offices and LITTLE CAESARS locations in the PUEBLO area. Promos and interviews aired on Talk KCSJ-A, Sports KDZA-A (HOMER 1350), and Classic Hits KPHT. The collection beat the initial goal of 2.500 coats.
"When you consider that over 3,700 coats were collected, it really helps you feel great inside about the humanity of Pueblo and their ability to step up," said CLEAR CHANNEL SOUTHERN COLORADO GM SCOTT JONES. "For them to be able to provide a coat off their own back to cover somebody else's, it's a very heartwarming and humbling experience to go through. It makes you proud to be a part of the PUEBLO area and call this place home."
