Coat Drive Program
One Warm Coat is the only national nonprofit organization focused on coat drives. One Warm Coat supports individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country by providing the tools and resources needed to hold a successful coat drive. Coats are distributed in the communities where they are collected, to children and adults in need, without charge, discrimination or obligation.
Each year, between 3,000-4,000 individuals host coat drives in their community. Since 1992, we’ve supported more than 35,000 coat drives and worked with our volunteers to distribute more than 6 million coats.
Bulk Coat Program
One Warm Coat gladly accepts bulk coat donations from retailers and manufacturers in the form of samples, overruns, overstocks and irregulars. Coats donated through our bulk program are given to individuals in need across the US.
If your company needs assistance with shipping costs, that is not a barrier for One Warm Coat. We will work with your company to get the coats to those who are in need of warmth.
We’ll also help you place donations other than coats! Reach out to learn more.
One Warm Coat’s network of nonprofit partner agencies and schools are integral to the Coat Drive Program. More than 1,000 nonprofit agencies and schools partner with us every year to accept and distribute the coats our Ambassadors collect. Coats are distributed for free and without discrimination to children and adults in need.
Crisis Coat Fund
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.
