Menasha, Wis. (Oct. 16, 2012)  Faith Technologies, a full-service electrical and specialty systems contractor, is a proud sponsor of The Salvation Army Coats for Kids Collection Day, which will take place on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012. This year’s collection day will be held inside the Talbots/Jos. A. Banks entrance of the Fox River Mall, located at 4301 W. Wisconsin Ave., in Grand Chute, from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The 2012 Coats for Kids campaign runs until Nov. 3.

Those who come out and donate a new or gently used coat will be entered to win a pair of tickets to watch the Green Bay Packers take on the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 28. Participants can earn an additional entry in this drawing by “Liking” Faith Technologies on Facebook.

“It is so important for members of our community to come together to support those in need right here in our back yard, and the Coats for Kids campaign provides a great avenue for that support,” said Dick Merbach, Regional Vice President. “The Salvation Army goes above and beyond to help families year round, and right now we all have the opportunity to keep local families warm this winter by donating jackets. Every donation makes a difference.”
