Green Team collecting coats & blanketsHolly Springs, NC – Once again this year Greenscape Inc. is collecting new and gently used coats, blankets, hats and mittens for the vitalink® Coats & Blankets drive to benefit Raleigh Rescue Mission. The drive will take place from November 1 through November 30, 2014.

“We encourage everyone to get outdoors and play,” says Daniel Currin, President of Greenscape Inc. “Unfortunately, for kids in the Triangle area who don’t have coats, hats and mittens, going outdoors in the cold weather is a hard sell and may even be dangerous.

We want kids and families to enjoy the outdoors and not be stuck inside simply because they don’t have a coat.”
