About

We are seeking groups (or indivduals!) that would like to organize and carry out their own "Coats for Cold" drives. By collecting donations of winter coats (as well as hats, gloves, and scarves) for children and adults, you would help families in need to stay warm during the harsh winter months ahead!

This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone seeking a way to improve the lives of low-income families! Putting together a "Coats for Cold" drive might be especially appreciated by students or professionals who are interested in building leadership skills by helping others in need; college clubs, church groups, and other clubs and groups that want to come together for a great cause; as well as businesses and teams of coworkers that would like to express their commitment to the community.

Examples of where you might hold a coat drive include local businesses, schools, colleges, neighborhoods, community centers, churches, or even among your own friends and family. If this type of outreach is new to you, we would be more than happy to offer guidance.

If you are interested, please don’t hesitate to contact us today! Thank you for considering this chance to be an important part of our 2016 "Coats for Cold" effort.
