RICHMOND, Va. - Thursday night at the Verizon Wireless Arena at the Stuart C. Siegel Center provides Ram Nation with a unique opportunity. Not only will it be the first chance to see the 2012-13 VCU Men's Basketball team in action, but also provides an opportunity to help out needy families in Central Virginia.
Once again, VCU Athletics has partnered with Puritan Cleaners to support their "Coats for Kids" program at Thursday night's exhibition game against Virginia Union.
"The Coats for Kids initiative is truly one of the great outreach programs in all of Central Virginia. We're fortunate to have corporate partners like Puritan Cleaners who have such a community-minded approach," Associate Athletic Director Robby Robinson said. "Our fans rarely disappoint when they are called on, and it wouldn't surprise me a bit to see hundreds of coats pouring through the doors on Thursday night destined for needy families in our area."
Each fan who brings in a coast will receive a free 2012-13 VCU Rams Team Photo (8x10). Clean out your closet and bring your coat or coats to help out needy families in the Central Virginia region.
There will be a stand on the concourse of the arena on Thursday night. For more information on the program, check out: http://www.puritancleaners.com/puritancleanerscoatsforkids.php
