The need has never been greater and it’s never been easier to make a difference in your community. Here is your opportunity to make sure that nobody goes without such a basic necessity as a coat this winter. Now through December 9th, Media Children’s House will be collecting coats as part of the One Warm Coat community service project. Coats of all shapes sizes are welcome. One Warm Coat is dedicated to distributing reusable coats, free of charge, directly to local children and adults. The program is an easy way for you and your family to pass along coats and jackets that you no longer need.
Media Children’s House has made donating a coat simple. Just bring us your clean, gently used coats and jackets to 3301 Concord Road in Aston, PA (across from the Aston Community Center) from 8:00 am to 5pm. Then, Media Children’s House will take care of the rest. All donated coats will be given to the UAME shelter in Chester, PA for distribution to local people in need.
“More people than ever need help these days. I am proud of the thousands of coat drive organizers whose creativity and generosity of spirit are making a real difference in their own communities.” commented Sherri Wood, President and National Coordinator for One Warm Coat.
MCH is proud to partner with One Warm Coat, a national non-profit organization that supports and encourages coat drives. It helps individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country collect coats and deliver them to local agencies that distribute the coats free to people in need. More than one million coats have been provided to those in need at no cost since its inception in 1992. Everyone at MCH is excited for this opportunity to teach our children what the holiday spirit is all about!
