December is here and winter has officially begun. Though in Southern California, winter often means sunny and 70 degrees, visitors are often surprised at how cold it can get, especially at night. Low-income families have a real need for warm winter clothing.
That’s why AVORS, familyfirst, and Embassy Surgery Center are proud to sponsor a winter coat drive. Do you have any winter coats or cold weather clothing that’s new or lightly used? Take it on down to the AVORS office.
Your donation can make a real difference in a person’s life, especially a child. At AVORS and familyfirst, we emphasize wellness and preventive medicine. One of the most basic aspects of health is maintaining a consistent, comfortable body temperature as much as possible. If you’re shivering all the time, you’re increasing your risk of hypothermia, plus catching a regular cold.
Consider donating to our Winter Coat Drive today and make a difference in your Antelope Valley community.
