Donate Coats This Winter

MakeadifferenceKid Power! Kids can make a difference! Every Thursday on Ink Splot 26, we’ll show you a new idea for how YOU can make the world a better place.

Do you have a winter coat that doesn’t fit you anymore? Don’t throw it away! Donate it to the Warm Coats Warm Hearts Drive, a campaign that is giving away free coats to families who need them. Here is a great way to bring some warmth into someone’s life AND recycle at the same time, making the world a better place in 2 ways!

  • What
    New or gently used coats (must have working closures, and no rips or stains)
  • When
    Now!
  • Where
    The Salvation Army and other organizations in your community may be collecting coats. Ask your parents, teachers, or youth group leaders if they know.

Go check the back of your closet to see if you have coats that you won’t be wearing this winter. Or you could go one step further — organize a coat drive and get everyone in your school to donate their coats. Someone can definitely use them this winter!

    Hey Sonja I already donated 6-7 jackets at my school which my homeroom teacher organized the coat drive.
    I appreciate you thinking about the poor and needy!
