With bitter cold temperatures fast approaching, the race is on to make sure those in need have a warm coat this winter. On October 7, national nonprofit One Warm Coat kicks off its annual coat drive season with One Warm Coat Day sponsored by The Weather Channel.
“Nearly 18 months after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, 1 in 7 Americans are living below the poverty threshold. Many households are struggling to cover basic living expenses and don’t have the money to purchase necessities such as warm coats,” said Beth Amodio, President, and CEO of One Warm Coat. “Many people are aware their neighbors are struggling and want to help, but they often don’t know where to start to make a difference. One Warm Coat offers a way for everyone to get involved and directly impact the lives of children and adults in need in their local community.”
