Envision Credit Union launches Coats for Kids campaign

Community initiative aims to collect new coats for kids in need this winter

TALLAHASSEE, FL (September 23, 2022) — Envision Credit Union (Envision) has recently announced the launch of their Coats for Kids campaign to provide school children in Jackson, Gadsden, Leon, Thomas, and Decatur counties with coats for the upcoming winter season. Envision encourages community members to donate new coats of any size beginning Sept. 23 through Oct. 31 at any Envision Credit Union branch location and participating public libraries. Once the coats are collected, Envision will announce its plan for distributing them in early November.

“It has always been our mission to support children in the communities we serve,” said Kelli Walter, Vice President of Community Development at Envision. “We recognize that many families are already on a constrained budget and with inflation still on the rise, we want to ensure that all kids have the resources they need to thrive in and outside the classroom. This is why we’re asking the community to join us in donating new coats so that we can get them to the kids that need it most.”

Community members interested in dropping off a new coat can do so by visiting any Envision Credit Union branch location, or at any of the following public libraries:

• LeRoy Collins Leon County Main Library, 200 W. Park Avenue, Tallahassee, FL
• Dr. B.L. Perry, Jr. Branch Library, 2817 S. Adams Street, Tallahassee, FL
