Make a Donation

Every $1 donated warms 1 person!

Monetary donations are vital to One Warm Coat. They support One Warm Coat’s mission to provide free coats to people in need.

All donations made on 10/7 will be matched, up to $15,000, by the OWC Board of Directors, meaning they will be doubled!

If you are holding a coat drive, all donations made on your coat drive page will be doubled on 10/7!
