PODS of Sacramento provides vital storage and logistics solution for NEWS10’s 21st Coats for Kids Winter Drive.
(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) – PODS Moving and Storage of Sacramento will donate several of its storage containers to help collect donated coats in support of NEWS10’s 21st Coats for Kids Winter Drive through Dec 9.
Logistics were a nightmare for organizers prior to using PODS®, according to Brian Bills, a lifetime resident of Fair Oaks, Calif., and territory manager at PODS of Sacramento.
“In 2010, we supplied three PODS® containers at Swansons main dry-cleaning facility and transported each filled unit to Cal Expo where volunteers from the Salvation Army sorted the coats by size,” Bills said. “Having onsite storage at the starting point streamlined the collection process and allowed for greater efficiency overall.”
Donations will be accepted through Dec. 9 at select Swansons Cleaners locations throughout greater Sacramento. PODS will then transport each container filled with clean coats to Cal Expo for staging and distribution on Dec. 30.
Coats for Kids has collected and distributed more than 500,000 coats to children of all ages. This year’s goal is to collect 25,000 new coats. Monetary donations also will be accepted. Mail donations to: The Salvation Army, PO Box 340699, Sacramento, CA, 95834. All proceeds benefit News10 Coats for Kids.
PODS of Sacramento is owned and operated by Storage Mobility and also participates locally in Sacramento's Chips for Kids Toy Drive, Toys for Tots, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and several other nonprofit and community organizations.
