PestVets Collects Nearly 5000 Coats for Homeless Veterans

The Georgia Pest Control Association’s (GPCA) PestVets’ annual Homeless Veterans Coat Drive recently collected nearly 5,000 coats for those in need.
The coat drive, run in collaboration with the Cherokee County Homeless Veterans Program, collected donations from October 1 to November 1, 2022.
On December 16, volunteers with PestVets and the Cherokee County Homeless Veterans Program met at the American Legion building in Canton, GA, to sort donations by size and weed out any donations in poor condition. During the drive, coats were collected regardless of size, season, gender, or age, as the coats went to homeless or near-homeless veterans and their families.
“We collected 3,500 coats last year, and that was impressive,” said Xavier Cugnon, Co-Chair of PestVets and Vice President of Human Resources Administration at Arrow Exterminating. “But with nearly 5,000 this year, we knocked it out of the park.”
Coats collected during the drive were donated from PestVets to the Cherokee County Homeless Veterans Program. Once in the care of the Cherokee County Homeless Veterans Program, the coats are then distributed to other veterans’ service organizations throughout the southeast. 
“We truly appreciate everyone’s help in collecting and donating coats,” said Rick Anglian, Co-Chair of PestVets and Business Development Manager at Bug Busters, Inc. “This year, we had one large U-Haul full of coats, but next year we’d love to have two. We want to continue to amplify our efforts and get more people involved.”
