Have you been going through your closets to change from your summer to winter wardrobe? Most of us have been busy with this chore and discovered coats and jackets we’re ready to donate.
Many adults and kids in neighboring communities don’t have wrap-around coats to ward off winter’s chill. To help everybody stay warm and toasty, the POA is once again sponsoring the One Warm Coat drive.
One Warm Coat provides free coats to people in need and works to create awareness of the vital need for warm coats across the country. It’s a volunteer effort encompassing all 50 states, even the warmer ones, with the overall theme of “No one should go cold.”
One Warm Coat partners with churches, non-profit agencies, community homeowners’ groups, and schools to distribute coats for free and without discrimination to children and adults in need.
Big Canoe’s effort to collect gently worn coats, jackets, and outerwear will run through the entire month of December. What once kept you warm and comfortable can do the very same for others.
Coats and jackets can be dropped off at The Clubhouse in Teri Sawyer’s office.
