WHO: Insurance Service of Asheville and ABCCM with support from 98.1 FM The River

WHAT: TOASTY: Blanket & Winter Wearables Drive

WHERE: Corner of College and Charlotte streets - Executive Park parking lot

WHEN: Thursday, November 17, 2016 • 7am – 1pm

BRING: New or clean, gently used blankets, coats, hats, scarves and gloves

RECEIVE: Hot coffee, donuts, plus breakfast treats from ISA staffers

Insurance Service of Asheville, Inc. is holding its 7th annual “Toasty” drive on Thursday, November 17, 7:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m, to help keep Asheville warm this winter, collecting blankets plus winter wearables such as coats, hats, scarves and gloves.

The locally owned and independent insurance agency, in partnership with Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministry and radio station 98.1FM The River, is holding the drive in the parking lot of its offices at Executive Park at the corner of College and Charlotte streets to collect new and clean, gently used blankets and warm clothing for ABCCM’s Crisis Ministry. The public is encouraged to stop by the drive, drop off a donation of one or more blankets or winter wearables, and enjoy coffee, donuts, and home-baked breakfast treats from the ISA staff. Staff from ABCCM, Insurance Service of Asheville, and 98.1FM The River’s live remote team will be on hand for the blanket drive.

Last season’s “Toasty” drive filled ABCCM’s donation truck with blankets, coats, hats and more — this year ISA hopes the drive will net even more to help the Crisis Ministry.

According to ABCCM Executive Director Scott Rogers, "We love that Insurance Service of Asheville is wrapping its arms around one of the biggest needs in Asheville, which is to provide a blanket, coats, hats and gloves for every needy woman, man, child and family. We thank God for everyone who will help ISA collect blankets, warming the hearts of those that give as well as the hearts of our neighbors in need. We are grateful for all the other businesses and friends of ISA who join them in making our city one of the toastiest in the mountains."

Insurance Service of Asheville President Jim Stickney notes, “Our company’s annual ‘Toasty’ drive is a way for us to meet a tangible need in our community as colder weather moves in. Because we provide coverage for people and businesses in Asheville through our insurance work, the annual ‘Toasty’ drive is a natural fit. We invite the community to join us in assisting ABCCM with these basic necessities.”

This is such a great initiative that we have set up a few collection boxes in our building for employees to bring in winter wearables and blankets. We have also posted signs in the neighboring business and library, offering our lobby as a drop off point, and will bring all donations to your drive on November 19!
