 Benjamin Enterprises’ Employees Give Back

Benjamin Enterprises’ employees in cooperation with One Warm Coat® and the Morrisania Community Life Center coordinated a coat drive for the Bronx, NY community. The Morrisania Community Life Center at 551 East 169th Street helps children, families and homeless families that are in need throughout the year. One Warm Coat is a national non-profit organization that supports and encourages individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country to collect coats. This organization has delivered nearly 3 million coats since its beginnings in 1992.

The Bronx headquarters and the Middletown, NY Training Facility of Benjamin Enterprises worked with the Sobro organization that manages the Bronx building to receive coats from any of the companies residing at the 199 Lincoln Avenue building. Over 60 coats were delivered by Benjamin Enterprises’ Leonard Miller, Operations Manager ,(pictured right) to Jerome Crawford, Executive Director of the Morrisania Community Life Center (pictured left).

“More people than ever need help these days, said Leonard and “Benjamin Enterprises was fortunate and happy to coordinate this needed effort.” The coats were distributed on Thanksgiving where the Center also served a Thanksgiving meal. Our CEO, Michelle Benjamin, VP of Operations, Hugh Benjamin and their daughter Nakima served as volunteers on Thanksgiving to help serve the community.
