The Greater Philadelphia region is a cold place to be during the winter, especially if you do not have a warm coat.
Be part of the Greater Philadelphia Cares 14th Annual Winter Coat Drive.
Last year over 130 businesses, civic groups and individuals collected 6000 new and gently used coats that were distributed throughout the region.
Every year, thousands of men, women, and children in the Greater Philadelphia region live through the cold winter season without a coat to keep warm. You may help provide them with this basic necessity. This event is a reminder that there are thousands of people whose only holiday wish is a warm coat for their children, parents, or themselves.
There are two ways area residents may help:
- Bring your new or “gently used” winter coat(s) to the December 21st or the January 18th Public Safety/Town Watch meeting held at the EPX office 1940 S. 13th Street or January 4th EPX General Membership meeting held in Neumann-Goretti High School’s Cafeteria!
- Drop off your new or “gently used” winter coat(s) at any of our public collection sites from November 1, 2009 through January 19, 2010.
All collected coats may be delivered to our generous project partner, St. Vincent DePaul.
Any donations of 10 coats or more must be delivered to the central St. Vincent DePaul warehouse at 901 East Luzerne Street, Philadelphia, 19124.
