Foundation House at Northgate is hosting a coat drive to collect clean, gently worn, warm coats December 2rd-20th between 8am and 7pm daily at 11301 3rd Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125. Area residents are invited to make a difference in our local community by donating to the coat drive.
“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 Community Relations Director, Lynn Creasy.
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 Foundation House at Northgate. It is because of our incredible volunteers that we have been around for more than 25 years, helping get coats to our neighbors who need them. Thanks to Foundation House at Northgate efforts, many people in this community will have a much warmer winter”, commented Jennifer Stockard, President and Chief Executive Officer of One Warm Coat.
