2015 GCG Coats for Colorado Collection
It’s that time of year again. The temperatures are dropping and there are adults and children in the community that need our help to stay warm this winter. GCG will be collecting slightly used and new coats for girls and boys of all ages and adults. We encourage all of our employees, sales partners and suppliers to bring in their coats to our corporate office headquarters located at 10333 E. Dry Creek Rd. Suite 320 and 430, Englewood, Colorado 80112. Our coat collection will commence on November 1st and run through December 1st, 2015.
This is the fifth year that GCG and Global Care Foundation have participated in the annual Coats for Colorado collection at our offices. For more information, please visit www.coatsforcolorado.org.
About Global Care Foundation
Global Care Foundation (GCF) was created as a way to give back to local community and those in need abroad. Founded in 2009, the non-profit 501 (c)(3) was part of a bigger initiative within GCG, a leading IT consulting firm and technology services distributor. Our intent was to create involvement and encourage employees and clients to give back to the community and help those struggling with homelessness, abuse, natural disasters and hardship. Today, GCF is more active than ever in the community and supports a large number of charities and causes. Our headquarters are located in Englewood, Colorado.
