Makenzie’s Coat Closet Annual Coat Drive

This week, Mediaura donated coats and other winter garments to Makenzie’s Coat Closet for their 2014 annual coat drive. Makenzie’s Coat Closet, founded in 2006, has distributed over 20,000 coats and countless hats, scarves, and gloves to those in need. The organization started as seven-year-old Makenzie Smith’s mission to keep the less fortunate warm in the cold winter months.

According to their website, Makenzie says she gets asked all the time what keeps her driven to continue donating. She says, “It is a question that is so easily felt, but hard to explain. You have to experience the joy in seeing the smiles on all the faces of those we help. The thanks and deep appreciation that so many have for what we do, the warmth that I feel every time I am able to say, ‘yes, we can help.'”

Mediaura is proud to support such a great cause and encourages other Kentuckiana businesses to donate. You can find out more information at
