1 out of 6 children in Pennsylvania live in poverty and warm winter coats are a necessity not a luxury. This community integration is important to the Barbera Cares Program to assist their community by gifts in action. It's more than just a donation every year this is near and dear to the Barbera family and employee's hearts. For families that are financially struggling, new coats are not easy to come by. Other necessities such as housing, medical care, utilities, and food take precedence over brand new clothing. Gary Barbera remarks, "It's a privilege for Barbera Cares to be able to come to the schools, meet the families and help the children select the coat they want. The gratitude and smiles on their faces is heart-melting."
