Our friends at the Courtesy Automotive Group are conducting their second annual "Warm Hearts, Warm Coats" drive for two great local charities -- Faith House and St. Joseph Shelter.

Donations are currently being accepted at each Courtesy dealership in Lafayette, Abbeville, Breaux Bridge, New Iberia, Franklin, Morgan City and St. Martinville.  All donations will be collected at each location then donated to Faith House and St. Joseph’s Shelter. Some of the most needed items include: jackets, gloves, scarves, and hats.  Donations will be accepted through February 28th.

“With the great success of last year’s campaign, we are honored to help those in our community that need it the most,” said Paul Stroderd, General Manager of Courtesy Automotive Group.

Faith House is a private, non-profit program for survivors of domestic violence and their children.  Their 45-bed facility accepts female victims of domestic violence and their minor children.

St. Joseph Shelter for men provides emergency and transitional housing where residents are assisted with obtaining employment, applying for mainstream benefits and obtaining permanent housing.
