YWCA Coat Drive
Sponsored by Nationwide/Associates Insurance
When: ALL November
Where: We will have several drop-off locations, see below!
Who: Anyone can donate.
The winter months are challenging for low income families and the homeless. It is hard to think of anyone heading out during these days without a proper coat, especially a child, but this is the reality for far too many people. Small Biz Cares wants to see these men, women, and children with coats that will protect and comfort them during the harsh months of winter. We’re partnering with YWCA Columbus to make this happen.
“For over 130 years, YWCA Columbus has responded to the needs of our community in meaningful and lasting ways. We provide affordable housing, emergency shelter, child care and critical services to help stabilize some of the most vulnerable women and families struggling to make ends meet. YWCA Columbus will continue our legacy and serve the central Ohio community through several initiatives.”
YWCA accepts new and gently used, freshly laundered coats. They need coats of all sizes (kids and adults)!
Several Small Biz Cares members and partners have joined in to provide convenient drop-off locations across Central Ohio. Find the nearest one to you!
