While the need for warm coats has never been greater, it has also never been easier to meet this vital need in our community. IRG invites area residents to join them in an effort to ensure that no one goes without a warm coat this winter.
IRG is holding a One Warm Coat drive and will be collecting clean, gently used warm coats. One Warm Coat is dedicated to collecting and distributing gently used warm coats–free of charge–directly to local children, ages preschool to grade 12, in the local area. The coat drive program provides an easy way for individuals and families to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors by simply passing along coats and jackets that are no longer needed.
IRG invites you to bring your clean, gently used coats and jackets to any of our Snohomish or King county clinics November 15th to January 3rd. The process is simple: you drop off your extra coat and IRG takes care of the rest. All donated coats will be given to a local agency for distribution to local children in need.
“So many of our neighbors need help these days. We are proud to work with and support One Warm Coat in their efforts to keep children in our community warm”, said Shannon O’Kelley, President of IRG.
