2018 Holiday Charity Drive to benefit Southeastern Veterans' Center
Posted on Friday Nov 30, 2018 in News
As 2018, our 81st year, draws to a close, we reflect on our blessings. We here at Cooney Brothers have much to be thankful for: caring employees, accommodating vendors, and a promising year ahead. Most of all we are thankful for our customers, who we are proud to call our friends.
With so much to be thankful for, the Cooney Brothers family has chosen to use our good fortune to help make a difference in our community. Internally we will be collecting items for the Southeastern Veterans' Center, a residential facility serving nearly 300 service men and women, located in Spring City, PA. We would like to extend an invitation to you, our friend: Please join us this Holiday Season, in supporting this worthy cause.
How to Participate
To participate, simply collect items in need. You can drop off your donation at Cooney Brothers in Plymouth Meeting or we may be able to pick it up from your place of business (please call us at 610-272-2100 to schedule a date.) We will be accepting items through December 14, 2018. Thank you in advance!
