We’re the only national organization supporting coat drives.
One Warm Coat’s mission is to provide free coats to children and adults in need while promoting volunteerism and environmental sustainability.
One Warm Coat is a national non-profit that works to create awareness of the vital need for warm coats across the country.
One Warm Coat supports volunteer efforts to hold coat drives by providing tools and resources.
One Warm Coat works with manufacturers and retailers to accept and process in-kind coat donations. Learn more about our programs.
One Warm Coat relies on individual and corporate financial donations to support the coat drive program, in-kind donation program, and awareness campaign, and to purchase new coats for agencies in crisis. Every $1 donated warms 1 person.
Shelter from the elements is a basic human need along with nourishing food, drinkable water, and a safe place to sleep.
