According to Jerry Needham, the original idea came about last fall when they were researching philanthropic outlets that reinforced their business identity.

"We are in the comfort business," explained Needham. "Therefore, we wanted to highlight the concept of being warm and comfortable.

"During our research, conducting a coat drive for those in need seemed like a natural fit. This led us to a nationwide nonprofit, One Warm Coat," he continued. "By combining their suggestions with our own ideas, we collected 169 warm clothing items during the winter months."

For more information about what items are accepted, call Pro Energy Consultants at (630) 770-4994.
