Second annual coat drive helps people in need stay warm

November 29, 2016

Nearly 50 million Americans are currently living in poverty. For these families and individuals, a warm coat is a budget extra they simply cannot afford. Alain Pinel Realtors® invites Marin County residents again this year to make a difference in their neighbor’s lives by donating coats and dollars during our upcoming coat drive!
Alain Pinel Realtors® is working again with One Warm Coat® to collect clean, gently used, warm coats to support the coat drive program, between November 30, 2016 and January 30, 2017. The process is simple: you drop off your extra coat(s) and Alain Pinel Realtors® takes care of the rest. All donated coats will be given to a local agency for distribution to local children and adults in need. Our goal is to collect 300 coats during our coat drive!
Clean, gently worn coats can be dropped off at the Alain Pinel Realtors’ Corte Madera, Mill Valley, Ross and Tiburon offices any time between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day (excluding major holidays).

“For more than 20 years we have been working to provide a warm coat to anyone who needs one. We are so thankful for our many coat drive ambassadors, like Alain Pinel Realtors® who volunteer their time, resources and energy to help their neighbors in need. Together, we can reach our goal of warming one million people each winter, one community at a time!” commented Jennifer Stockard, President and Chief Executive Officer of One Warm Coat.

One Warm Coat is a national non-profit organization that works to provide a free, warm coat to any person in need and raises awareness of the vital need for warm coats. One Warm Coat supports individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country by providing the tools and resources needed to hold a successful coat drive. Coats are distributed in the communities where they were collected, to any person in need, without charge, discrimination or obligation. Since its inception in 1992, One Warm Coat has worked with its volunteers to give away over four million coats.
