One Warm Coat Day is a day of:

Support: Donate funds

On October 3, please spread awareness and get your family, friends & co-workers
involved with spreading warmth.



Here’s How You Can Get Involved On One Warm Coat Day 


The goal for One Warm Coat Day is to register 500 coat drives in one day!  Please register a coat drive on October 3 and encourage your family, friends, co-workers and neighbors to join you by spreading awareness on social media.

Raise Awareness

Please help us spread the word about the need for warm coats!  If you are holding a coat drive, One Warm Coat Day is a great day to promote your drive (send a press release to your local news station!) and encourage everyone you know to support with donations of coats and dollars. If you are not holding you can get involved by sharing One Warm Coat’s social media posts and emails and encouraging everyone you know to make a difference on October 3.


Every $1 donated warms 1 person!

Monetary donations are vital to One Warm Coat.  They support One Warm Coat’s mission to ensure that no one goes cold in the winter.  The OWC Board of Directors has put up a challenge gift for One Warm Coat day, they will MATCH the first $10,000 donated on 10/3. Your impacted will be doubled on One Warm Coat Day.
