The holiday season is a time for giving back. This year, Whitley Law Firm wanted to celebrate the reason for the season by supporting one of North Carolina’s most noble causes, Coats for the Children. Ben Whitley went out to visit the anchors with WRAL & Fox 50 to offer a generous donation of $3,000 to support in-need families.
This donation came in the midst of the Coats for the Children telethon held in partnership with the Salvation Army. The telethon strove to help break previous donation records, with the goal of generating more than $156,000 in support for this year’s Coats for the Children drive.
Whitley Law Firm cares so much about its community that it has integrated outreach and service into its foundational goals. The firm’s Coats for the Children donation of $3,000 is one of many it has made toward this and similar causes over the years. In an interview with WRAL & Fox 50 during the Coats for the Children telethon, Ben Whitley promised more support to come.
Whitley Law Firm was one of several corporate partners that helped WRAL & Fox 50 bring this year’s Coats for the Children donations to even greater heights. Other partners that donated this season include:
- Jiffy Lube Multicare
- Bailey’s Fine Jewelry
- Blanton’s Air, Plumbing, and Electric
- Forever Clean
The Generosity of the Holiday Season
As of December 15th, vendors, families, and generous community members had donated a total of $129,328 toward this year’s Coats for the Children cause. Donations formally concluded on December 31st, but the Salvation Army’s Coats for the Children site remains open.
Anyone interested in purchasing a coat, gloves, scarf, or other cold-weather gear for in-need families can still reach out.
