When the weather turns colder it’s time to look at those who are without. As we enter into a major season of giving keep this charity in mind.
Their goal… “to provide any person with a warm coat, free of charge. Providing this simple, yet vital, need helps people live productive lives year round.”
The “About Us” section will tell you all about how they got started. They’ve been around since 1992.
Collect — This section will tell you how to go about setting up a coat collection event in your area. I’m hoping that someone will start one near Toledo or Lorain, so that I can donate some coats I have no use for anymore.
Donate — This takes you to a map of the United States, click your state and see where you can donate coats at. This will also let you know if there is a collection in your area already if you are thinking of organizing an event.
Tell Us — Did you run an event? Tell them how it went! How many coats were collected? Do you want patches for your participants?
Ideas — This section can give you tons of ideas for your event, help you make flyers, as well as show you pictures of events from around the country!
Contact — of course is the organizations contact information, with email addresses if you want to get in touch with them via the internet.
I hope you all keep this organization close to you heart this winter.
