Enoch Office Equipment employee Rick Donovan once again partnered with WNST radio personalities Drew Forrester, Glenn Clark and WNST CEO Nestor Aparicio to collect and deliver coats and clothing to Baltimore’s Helping Up Mission, a faith based initiative dedicated to helping not only the homeless of Baltimore, but also those fighting addiction, or individuals struggling to get back on their feet after being released from prison.
Throughout this year Enoch Office was a designated ‘drop off” location for the coat and clothing drive.
This partnership began in 2010, when Forrester, the host of WNST’s “Morning Reaction,” asked his listeners to bring him coats, coats he planned to handout to the homeless men and women of Baltimore city.
“I hoped to get 25 coats,” said Forrester, not expecting to generate a lot of interest.
Forrester got more than he had expected – 232 coats to be exact! Forrester then took those coats downtown, in a van donated by Joe Enoch, to an amazing facility called Helping Up Mission and distributed those coats to the needy men and women of Baltimore City.
Three years later, Forrester and Enoch are still getting together each and every holiday season to collect and distribute coats to the less fortunate.
During a holiday season that is marred nowadays by greed and commercialism, it is nice to know that philanthropic events like this still take place. Everyone here at Enoch would like to thank you for your generous donations!
“Seeing the gratitude of those receiving these [clothing] items – Is just tremendous,” said Forrester.
