UWYC Happenings

A Warmer York County   
Weather in South Carolina can be unpredictable.  Temperatures can swing from 30 degrees to 75 degrees in the same day.  For some residents of York County, those frigid numbers can put someone down, especially if they do not have a warm coat.  Thanks to Comporium's 4th annual Winter Warm-Up coat drive, those residents can get the coats they need.  This year's drive brought in 1,200 coats!

Thank you to our community partners that made this such a success: Comporium and CN2 for coordinating, hosting, having drop off sites at each retail location and spreading the word; Long's Cleaners voluntarily cleaned all the coats collected; CACH for collecting coats and helping on distribution day; The City of Rock Hill provided transportation of the coats and provided the Housing & Neighborhood Services office for coat distribution day.

This type of support shows how much York County cares for its neighbors and is committed to seeing everyone thrive.
