1) How did you first learn about W.O.M.A.N., Inc.?
Our Cole Street assistant store manager Tessa Riley adopted two families a few years back for us to help out with the Adopt a Family Program. This was our third year.
2) What inspired you to support W.O.M.A.N., Inc’s anti-violence efforts?
Cole Hardware has a very large community partner program, with over 600 schools and nonprofits as members. Year-round we help our partners with their fundraising efforts. Also, every year in December we host toy drives, food drives, and warm coat drives. Adopting a few families for the holiday gift program was a perfect fit for Cole Hardware. In addition, we were able to raise over $1000 in cash from our Spare Change Program in December, too.
3) What is the impact you hope for your support to have on the community?
We hope that we were able to make the holidays a bit brighter for a few families in our communities.
4) Can you share one fun fact about yourself?
Our founder Dave Karp will turn 98 this year! We will be celebrating with a big event in June.
