How To Create a Collection Bin

One Warm Coat does not provide collection bins, we encourage our Ambassadors to be creative and reduce/reuse/recycle old boxes, clean garbage cans – a container of any kind will work! Putting a collection bin together is super easy, just follow the steps below and you will have an eye catching collection bin ready for your coat drive!

Your free Coat Drive Kit includes a large banner, smaller posters and stickers that are perfect for decorating your collection bin.  To receive a free Coat Drive Kit, make sure to register your drive.

For more collection bin ideas, scroll to the bottom of the page to view a gallery of our Ambassador’s past creations!
