Have you seen the weather reports? A large majority of the US is experiencing some seriously cold weather – every state has felt below-freezing temperatures recently!
And this is just the beginning. We have at least two months left of this weather. Can you imagine waiting for the bus, or walking to work or school, in these temperatures – without a coat?
According to our records, it looks like you haven’t registered to hold a coat drive yet this winter – will you please register to hold a coat drive today?
Wondering if it’s too late to hold a coat drive? It’s not!
We receive calls and emails every day from parents, teachers, co-workers, shelters, etc. asking us for coats. The coats are needed now more than ever. Many of our nonprofit agencies are giving the coats away as quickly as they receive them. Just last week, one of our partners wrote to us and said:
The people that were helped in our community, which is 100% poverty, was tremendous. There are no words to thank those who donated the coats that were provided to so many children and adults that needed a warm coat for the long winter. The coats were so appreciated and the children were so happy to receive one. There were parents that were crying when their child received a coat because it was so much needed.
One Warm Coat’s 6-step program allows you to design a coat drive that fits your schedule:
- Pick any date you like and decide if your drive will be held for one day or several weeks.
- Hold your drive anywhere! Your home, place of worship, workplace, your children’s school or youth organization – the possibilities are endless.
