On Friday we will continue accepting donations from 8:30am to 7:30pm. To celebrate and give thanks, we will be hosting a “thank you festival” on Fri, November 10 from 3pm to 7:30pm. There will be hot chocolate, warm cider, a bounce house, camp fires, s’mores, hot dog roasting, face painting, and fun!
“We are so excited about our upcoming One Warm Coat drive and hope the community will support us. There are nearly 50 million Americans currently living in poverty and struggling to provide a warm coat for themselves or their families. One Warm Coat’s program helps us keep all of the coats we collect in this community, which will make a big difference for our neighbors who need a coat” said Coat Drive Ambassador and local resident.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of gently worn coats are distributed across North America to children, women and men in need through One Warm Coat’s Coat Drive program. “We are so grateful for our Coat Drive Ambassadors, like The Salon Professional Academy! It is because of our incredible volunteers that we have been around for 25 years, helping get coats to our neighbors who need them. Thanks to The Salon Professional Academy’s efforts, many people in this community will have a much warmer winter”, commented Jennifer Stockard, President and Chief Executive Officer of One Warm Coat.
One Warm Coat is a national non-profit organization that works to provide a free, warm coat to any person in need and raises awareness of the vital need for warm coats. One Warm Coat supports individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country by providing the tools and resources needed to hold a successful coat drive. Coats are distributed in the communities where they were collected, to any person in need, without charge, discrimination or obligation. Over the past 25 years, One Warm Coat has worked with its volunteers to give away nearly 5 million coats.
