Coats for Kids Coat Drive at Steet Ponte VW!

By cmathias | Posted in Dealer Information, News on Monday, December 9th, 2019 at 6:52 PM

Last week was the end of our first ever Coats for Kids Coat Drive. We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to everyone who took the time and money to donate a coat for our local children in need. As a family owned and operated business, we know the importance of helping our community, and of course families in need. We raised donations for the Utica, NY and Rome, NY Pre-K to 6th grade School Districts, and donated probably 400-500 new winter coats to kids in need. We have been blown away by the generosity of our customers, staff members, family, friends, and anyone who decided to brave walking into a car dealership to donate a coat!!
