Lyon Real Estate kicked off its third annual Coat Drive earlier this month, part of the company’s Lyon Cares program. Warm winter coats will be collected through Thursday, Oct. 31, for distribution to local residents in need.
“Last year, we collected more than 5,500 coats and distributed them to 30 local organizations,” said Pat Shea, president and CEO. “This year, we plan to do even better.”
Lyon Real Estate is collecting new and clean, reusable coats of all sizes.
Coats may be dropped off at the Davis Lyon office, 401 Second St., between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Saturdays or 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Sundays.
“Or, give your favorite Lyon agent a call and arrange for your coats to be picked up,” a news release said.
Coats collected in Davis will be donated to the Short-Term Emergency Aid Committee, the Yolo Crisis Nursery and the Davis Community Meals homeless shelter.
“Lyon Real Estate is excited to lead this great community effort that will help keep those in need a little warmer as the days turn colder,” said Davis office manager Ed Maeda. “It’s an easy way to contribute. Many of us have warm coats sitting in our closets that we don’t need anymore, and they will be put to good use by donating them to the Lyon Real Estate coat drive.”
Fourteen other Lyon Real Estate offices are also drop-off locations for coats and include Auburn, Cameron Park, downtown Sacramento, El Dorado Hills, Elk Grove, Fair Oaks, Folsom, Land Park/Curtis Park, Natomas, Placerville, Roseville, Sierra Oaks, West Roseville/Rocklin and Woodland.
