Coat Drive

If you find yourself in Boston on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 7pm, come by:

The Sail Loft
80 Atlantic Ave.
Boston, Mass. 02110

Please come out to join good friends for an evening of cocktails, conversation, and most importantly coat donations for those in need.
We are gathering to collect clean, usable, and warm winter coats of all sizes for those in need in the Boston area. 

Please take a moment to look through your closet to find a gently used coat or two that would be of use to someone that is going without this season. I am sure we can all easily find at least one or two coats that we wouldn't miss, and someone else might treasure.

We are collecting coats of all sizes, genders, ages etc. Please bring anything that is usable that you would be able to pass along to someone in need.

This coat drive will be benefiting Bay Cove Human Services here in Boston, and the "One Warm Coat" initiative nationally.

More information on these organizations can be found at:

Nothing wasted on overhead for this event.  No frills, no fancy.  If you are not near Boston, locate something near you and donate a coat.

  1. YWP, Thank you for sharing. There is a great need out there for something that is so much a part of our day to day lives. It is easy to take having a coat for granted.

    This is a pretty powerful statement from the One Warm Coat site: “It was very gratifying to donate the coats in what has been one of the coldest winters in New England. 17 coats were used the night we delivered them.”.

    The need is real, immediate, and easily addressed.


Let's keep it clean... but if you DO have to get foul, at least give it a bit of wit. Also, advertising disguised as comments will be deleted, unless it is clever.
