2nd time is the charm for Newton Kia's "Kids Need Coats" program.

Newton NJ - The second year of the Newton Kia Kids Need Coats program was again very successful for the dealership located on Route 94 in Lafayette and the Sussex County Division of Social Services to get local area kids in need, new warm coats for the winter. Nick Kapetanakis from the Division of Social Services picked up 2 very large and overflowing bins loaded with brand new coats to take and deliver to the local families who need warm coats just in time for the bitter cold weather that typically comes in January.

Newton Kia, a family owned and operated new and used car dealership teamed up with Sussex County Division of Social Services and local Clear Channel Radio Stations WSUS 102.3 and Max 106.3 last year for the 1st Kids Need Coats program. "The community came out in full support of our 1st Kids Need Coats program so we decided we should do it again this year", stated dealership General Manager CJ Meyer. Newton Kia Sales Manager Herb Hernandez added that "We put info on our website, Facebook profile and our print, radio and cable ads, the radio station put banner ads on their site and ran special messages during the month of December and again the community showed their generosity to those in need once more. We're very proud to be a part of the community".
