United Way Coat, Shoe and Blanket Drive a Success

December 2016 - ASAP Business Solutions partners with United Way and other agencies for their annual Coat, Shoe, and Blanket Drive.

In early 2016 ASAP Business Solutions opened their office in Aberdeen, WA. Owner, Nate Yanez, set out looking for ways ASAP could get involved in their new community. He was approached in June by United Way and Donna Rosi from Alpha Media to partner in their annual coat, shoe, and blanket drive. Mr.Yanez put up the initial seed money and volunteers started a fund raising campaign. In the end a successful $11,600.00 was raised!! 15 schools participated in the Coats & Shoes Drive. The money that was left over went towards the purchasing of sleeping bags, raincoats and socks for anyone in the community who may have need. Salvation Army got involved and donated 100 vouchers that could be redeemed for coats as well. November 5th, ASAP opened their doors for the distribution day. What a great success this year’s drive was. Thank you to all the businesses, volunteers and individuals who contributed their time and money to make this happen.
