DOYLESTOWN, Pa. - Oct. 28, 2015 - PRLog -- On Wednesday, October 20th, The Thompson Organization delivered 240 brand new winter coats to Tabor Children’s Services and the Bucks County Children and Youth Social Services Agency, both in Doylestown. The coats were donated as part of the Driving Away the Cold program started in 2008 by the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation and the Automobile Dealers Association of Greater Philadelphia.

The Foundation was created with the goal of enriching the lives of the one in six local children living in poverty, and the mission of its signature Driving Away the Cold program is simple: to provide winter coats to underprivileged children living in the five-county region of Philadelphia. Since the program’s inception, the Foundation and its members have donated 220,182 new coats to the children who need them most.

"The Thompson Organization is proud to have participated in the Driving Away the Cold initiative for six years,” says John Thompson, Vice President of The Thompson Organization. “We are humbled to have the opportunity to support the welfare of local children and families, and to fulfill a need that many take for granted."

With locations in Doylestown and Philadelphia, Tabor Children’s Services is a multi-service child welfare agency that serves children, youth, young adults, and families. The Bucks County Children and Youth Social Services Agency also provides a variety of services to local children and families which aim to strengthen and promote family life and stability. "It’s so wonderful to be able to give the children coats before the temperature drops. The children and parents smile from ear to ear when they receive them – they’re so grateful," said Roxanne Watkins-Hall, Foster Parent and Volunteer Recruiter at BCCYSSA. "On behalf of our agency, I thank The Thompson Organization for partnering with us to help our needy families."


In business since 1969, The Thompson Organization includes Thompson Toyota, Scion, Lexus, BMW, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, and Thompson Rent A Car, located at Routes 313 and 611 in Doylestown, as well as the Thompson Detail Center located on North Broad Street in Doylestown, the Thompson Collision Center located on Route 611 in Plumsteadville, and Thompson Volkswagen, Porsche of Bucks County and Audi Warrington, located on Route 611 in Warrington.
