Almost a thousand area residents will soon be receiving a new coat thanks to the United Way of Siouxland and Staples Promotional Products.
Lori Twohig, the United Way’s Community Impact Associate, says the “spread the warmth in Siouxland” campaign started with a phone call from Staples:

984 people in Siouxland are going to be warmer thanks to one mouse click.
Twohig says the Siouxland United Way reached out to over 20 organizations, including those in the Le Mars and Plymouth County area to make sure that the coats got into the hands of the people who need them the most.

Twohig says there was a major need for coats for adults, so she’s pleased the Staples group was able to provide hundreds of coats for those area residents who are in need.
