Thousands of Coats Donated to People’s City Mission From Raising Cane’s Coat Drive
With the help of the Lincoln community, Raising Cane’s (www.raisingcanes.com) donated over 1,900 new and gently-used coats to the People’s City Mission and Homeless Prevention Center during their 10th annual Raising Coats with Raising Cane’s coat drive. Throughout the month of October, when a new or gently used coat was donated, the donor received a free meal with purchase offer. Through these efforts, Raising Cane’s gave over $8,500 in food to support the cause.
Since 2007, supporters have helped donate nearly 15,300 coats to the People’s City Mission. “The generosity of the Lincoln community continues to amaze me. Each year we have seen the number of donated coats in Lincoln increase” said Jennifer Jones, owner of the Lincoln Raising Cane’s franchise. “A sincere thank you to everyone who dropped off a coat this year or in years past—none of this would have been possible without the support of each and every one of you.”
Distribution to shelter residents was held on Tuesday, November 1 and made available to the public at the Homeless Prevention Center on November 2. Since 2006, the Lincoln franchise has given back over $1 million to the Lincoln community.
