Suddath collects sweaters for charity

Dec 17 | 2020

Suddath has again participated in the annual Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive from 1-30 November, 2020. Suddath collected gently-used sweaters and other winter apparel for donation to local non-profit organisations.

Suddath collected donated items, then returned them to its Jacksonville warehouse for sorting, before delivering them to participating organisations.

“Last year, Suddath added ‘caring’ as one of our core values, which honours our tradition of philanthropy and giving back to the communities where we operate,” said Scott Perry, president of Suddath Moving and Logistics. “We’re particularly grateful to participate in the Sweater Drive this year, when extraordinary circumstances have unfortunately left many of members of our community disadvantaged.”

This is the 18th year for the Sweater Drive, which was created to honour the memory of television host and producer Fred Rogers. In 2019, the event collected over 15,000 sweaters, jackets, blankets, socks and other cold-weather items for community members in need.
