The 9th annual Driving Away the Cold program launches in September and, as in previous years, all of the Conicelli dealerships in Conshohocken and Springfield will participate.

The program provides a warm new winter coat to a needy child for every vehicle sold during the month of September. In 2015, the five Conicelli dealerships donated over 1,452 new winter coats to the program.

Among the organizations targeted locally by Conicelli were Carson Valley Children’s Aid in Flourtown, Macedonia Baptist Church in Norristown, Frederick Douglass School in Chester, and Norristown’s Missionary Sisters of Charities.

In October the Auto Dealers Caring for Kids Foundation will culminate with a massive special day of giving, where thousands of brand-new winter coats will be distributed to students from throughout the Philadelphia School District.

Since 2008, the Foundation has given the gift of a new winter coat to 220,182 deserving local children. The Conicelli dealerships have eagerly participated in the program, and we anticipate that the donations will outpace even last year’s record.
