      WARREN, OHIO (November 8, 2012)…The 3rd annual RMHC “Give-A-Coat” campaign will provide $20,000 in free winter coats for underserviced children in Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull counties.

      Advance registration for eligible families in Trumbull County will take place from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15 and Friday, Nov. 16 at the Warren Family Mission, 361 Elm Road, Warren. The Give-A-Coat event for residents of Trumbull County will be held from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m on Saturday, December 1 at the Warren Family Mission.

      "It’s horrifying how quickly children can suffer from frostbite or other unimaginable consequences when temperatures plunge and they are not properly dressed for harsh weather conditions,” said Herb Washington, a local McDonald’s Owner/Operator and Board President of RMHC of Mahoning Valley & Western PA. “Children shouldn’t have to shiver while waiting for a school bus or miss out on an opportunity to play outside because they don’t have a coat.”

      To register, parents or guardians from Trumbull County must show valid state-issued photo ID and the Social Security and medical cards for each child, up to age 18. For more information about Trumbull County registration, contact Cheryl Parsons at 330.207.1903.

      Additional “Give-A-Coat” distribution events will also be scheduled for Columbiana and Mahoning counties. Parents or guardians whose children may be eligible to participate in this program or for more information please contact the organization in your county.

      Columbiana county residents please contact Carla Sukosd at The Way Station, 330.482.5072. For families residing in Mahoning County please contact the Third Baptist Church at 330.743.0604.

      “We are extremely grateful to RMHC for funding the coat giveaway event, and to our local Wal-Mart for providing us with the warm, protective outerwear for deserving families,” said Cheryl Parsons, event coordinator at the Warren Family Mission.

      Local McDonald’s Owner/Operators, including Washington, John Perdue, Steve Telischak and Rick Telischak, who also serve on board of RMHC, will be joined by Ronald McDonald and dozens of volunteers from local child service organizations across Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull Counties at these events.

      The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Mahoning Valley & Western Pennsylvania is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well being of children in our own communities.

      RMHC of Mahoning Valley & Western PA helps children by awarding grants to qualified not-for-profit organizations whose programs improve the quality of life for children and their families in the area. Founded in memory of McDonald’s founder, Ray Kroc, RMHC awards grants to organizations with IRS 501(c)(3) status whose programs benefit children in the areas of health care, medical research, education, the arts, and civic and social services.
