For Immediate Release Glassboro, NJ— HFM Investment Advisors, LLC, has expanded its Annual Gloucester County Coat Drive to support the broader South Jersey region, including Salem and Cumberland counties. This is their ninth year of collecting coats beginning October 15, 2018, and lasts through January 31, 2019.
So far HFM has collected and donated more than 15,200 coats to South Jersey residents in need over the past eight years. Last year, HFM amassed a record 3,006 coats. This year, HFM plans to top that record and surpass over 18,000 total coats collected.
Drop-off sites include HFM’s Glassboro, NJ office, all local Gloucester County Library System branches, the Margaret E. Heggan Public Library in Washington Twp., NJ, plus 30 additional locations. The Public can find a full list of the 30-plus drop-off locations at www.HFMadvisors.com/our-committment.
HFM guides others by helping them make effective financial decisions—but it cares about much more than numbers and charts. HFM supports its community through fundraisers, board memberships, nonprofit sponsorships, and more.
It achieves this goal through partnering with the Heart of South Jersey (www.heartsj.org), which distributes the donated coats to more than 20 nonprofit organizations that share one goal: helping others. As HFM extends its donation reach, Heart of South Jersey provides coats to veterans, children, families, and the homeless. The Y.A.L.E school of Cherry Hill provides volunteers to help count, sort and deliver coats throughout the drive.
“I’m eager to see the number of coats we collect this year grow with the help of your generous donations and more drop off box locations from last year. Our mission is to provide a coat for every man, woman, and child in need in South Jersey,” said HFM President Michael Pallozzi.

HFM would like to thank the community for their donations to their 7th annual coat drive. This year we collected just over 3,000 coats which takes our seven-year grand total to 12,200. The 2016 coat drive, which began in October, was hoping to reach the 10,000 coat mark but far surpassed it. Throughout the winter the coats were distributed to those in need throughout Gloucester County.
The drive had over 30 coat drop-off locations throughout the area. Several volunteers participated in the drive including students enrolled in the Standard 9 program at the Y.A.L.E School. The students volunteered once a week throughout the drive sorting and organizing the thousands of coats received.
Our Coat Drive mission is to provide every man, woman and child in need in Gloucester County with a coat for the winter. Over 20 Gloucester County organizations received the coats such as the AmVets, Kitchen of Hope, Glassboro Success Center, Angels Clothing Closet, Unforgotten Haven, and many more. Visit http://hfmadvisors.com/our-committment/ to see a complete list of recipient organizations.
Paul Blackstock and his team from the nonprofit, Heart of South Jersey, worked quickly to distribute the coats throughout Gloucester County. When asked who receives the coats, Paul Blackstock said, “Families throughout the county and also homeless veterans. We work with VFWs, American Legions and several other organizations to get them out to those who need them.”
Our President, Michael P. Pallozzi, noted, “We are so happy we surpassed our goal this year, which means thousands of people got the help they needed. Gloucester County is a wonderful, strong community and we are thrilled to give back to our neighbors in need.”
HFM Investment Advisors conducts the coat drive every year. Our firm is always looking for partners to become collection locations. We are looking forward to helping thousands more neighbors when our 2017-18 drive begins next October. Contact Kristine Robinson at krobinson@HFMadvisors.com to get involved or for more details.
The weather is getting colder and everyone needs a warm coat. But not everyone can afford one. See how our community works together to help neighbors in Gloucester County. Click image to check out our 2016 video to see how you can help too –https://hfmadvisors.wistia.com/medias/xqt7ftj1tb
