One Warm Coat launched the Crisis Coat Fund in fall 2019 to address the needs of communities in crisis who are not able to receive coats through the Coat Drive Program alone.

The Crisis Coat Fund enables One Warm Coat to respond quickly to emergency requests for coats by purchasing coats in bulk amounts, at a significantly discounted rate, and shipping the coats directly to where they are most needed.

Since 2019, nearly 5,000 coats have been purchased and distributed through the Crisis Coat Fund.

Crisis Coat Fund In Action

Students in Connecticut after receiving coats from the Crisis Coat Fund.

Being a teacher is not your typical 9-5 job.  So many nights I go home thinking, and worrying, about my students.  One of my greatest concerns is them staying warm during the winter months.  Not only do our students need to wait at bus stops or walk to school during the cold Northeastern months, but many have trouble keeping heat on inside their homes.  I was so overwhelmed and filled with joy when we received coats from One Warm Coat. I hope that this photo of my students fills you with as much joy as the students had when they received their new coats. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.  You have made a world of difference in their little lives.

Due to purchasing and manufacturing minimums, a minimum donation of $5,000 to the Crisis Coat Fund is required for purchasing coats. If you, or your company, is interested in purchasing new coats for children and/or adults in need, please email

Request Help

The Crisis Coat Fund is here to help One Warm Coat’s Nonprofit Partners. If your organization or school is in a crisis situation and immediately needs coats, please let us know. We may be able to provide assistance.
