Tis the season of giving and it’s so important to do so. We love to help out others and thanks to my blog, we’re able to use your platform to make a different in our community. It’s so much easier to help others when you have the resources to do so. But let’s say, you want to help someone but you feel you don’t have the resources to do so. You actually can make a big difference and you probably didn’t even no it. One Warm Coat is a resource you could use.
One Warm Coat is a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing a free, warm coat to any person in need. And they make it extremely easy and fun for you to participate, or even do your own coat drive.
Imagine not having a coat to keep you warm as the temperatures begin to drop. Now you and your children can help!
How It Works: One Warm Coat provides the tools and resources needed to hold a successful coat drive in 6 easy steps! The organization’s website helps organizers (individuals, schools, community groups, church groups and businesses) plan, promote and implement a coat drive. Once a drive is registered, One Warm Coat will send Ambassadors all of the materials they need to host a coat drive, including a banner, box labels, stickers and more. Once coats are collected, they will be distributed within their community to any person in need, without charge, discrimination or obligation through the organization’s network of non-profit partners. To donate a coat, search the One Warm Coat drive locator to find an active coat drive near you.
Coat drives are easy to host and an ideal activity for:
• Parents, teachers and students looking to make a positive impact on their community through a service project
• People seeking to add a philanthropic component to an upcoming family gathering or party
• Community members finding ways to give back during the winter months
• Professionals who would like to engage their colleagues in a good cause
• People who may be moving or looking for ways to recycle
• Corporations and Brands who want to make a difference in the communities where their employees and customers work and live
So it’s actually fun because your kids can feel involved. They can decorate the box, they can use the provided stickers, they can donate a coat they no longer fit in. They can ask their friends. It can be a great bonding experience all while making a difference and helping One Warm Coat reach their goal of collecting 1 million coats this season.
