Realtors from Crye-Leike offices throughout the Chattanooga area organized a company coat drive to help their neighbors in need. 

Crye-Leike collected 75 coats to donate to the Chattanooga News Channel 9 ‘Coats For Kids’ campaign  with adult’s and children’s coats being distributed to local soup kitchens, churches, schools and other places.

“We were excited about the large collection of new and gently used coats we were able to donate to those folks in the community who need it most,” said Crye-Leike Realtor Mary Carlson. “As realtors out and about working in the local community, it’s always nice to give something back to the communities we serve. We are proud that our efforts and coat donations will help many of our neighbors in need stay warm this winter.”

A special thanks goes to Crye-Leike Realtor Mary Carlson for organizing the coat drive and delivering the coats. Ms. Carlson is based out of Crye-Leike’s East Brainerd branch office and helps plan and organize several fundraisers each year for the company’s Chattanooga agents to be able to support the local communities they serve.
