[United States] March 16, 2021 – One Warm Coat announced today it has been named a “2021 Top-Rated Nonprofit” by GreatNonprofits, the leading website for community recommendations of charities and nonprofits. Receiving a Top-Rated Nonprofit Badge from GreatNonprofits demonstrates that One Warm Coat is committed to transparency and has been endorsed by clients, volunteers, and community members.

One Warm Coat provides free coats to children and adults throughout the United States. Last year, more than 500,000 individuals in need received the gift of warmth.

“We are honored to be named a 2021 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” says Beth Amodio, President & CEO of One Warm Coat. “We are grateful to the Coat Drive Ambassadors, donors, and nonprofit partners who overcame many obstacles this year during the COVID-19 pandemic, to hold coat drives, support One Warm Coat, and distribute coats to those in need. Due to the economic hardships created by the pandemic, the need for coats was greater than ever.”

The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that One Warm Coat received from nonprofit partners, volunteer Coat Drive Ambassadors, and donors. One nonprofit partner wrote, “Our organization serves women and children within our community who are living in economic hardship. This past year has been especially difficult for many of our guests. One Warm Coat provided us with countless supplies to assist our families during the winter months. One guest in particular, came to us wearing a blanket with her grandson in tow. We were able to let them each choose a brand-new coat and we also provided them with hats, gloves and scarves.”

“One Warm Coat is a great example of a nonprofit making a real difference,” said Perla Ni, CEO of GreatNonprofits, “Their award is well-deserved recognition not only of their work, but the tremendous support they receive, as shown by the many outstanding reviews they have received from people who have direct experience working with One Warm Coat.”

GreatNonprofits is the largest donation website for nonprofits and where people share stories about their personal experiences on more than 1.6 million charities and nonprofits. The GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Awards are the only awards for nonprofits determined by those who have direct experience with the charities – as donors, volunteers and recipients of aid.
