Donations for the 35th annual Coats for the Cold coat drive are being accepted until November 30th, 2022. Sponsored by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, gently-used or new coats can be dropped off at one of their drop-off sites around Oakland County. Donated coats will be sent to various local charitable organizations who distribute the coats to community members in need.
“Coats for the Cold is an easy way for the community to reach out and help someone less fortunate stay warm this winter. For the past 35 years, we have worked with local charitable organizations to provide free coats to those in need. The community’s generosity has been wonderful every year.”-Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard
The Coats for the Cold coat drive is sponsored by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with 1-800-Self-Storage.com, Real Estate One/Max Broock Realtors, McKenzie Moving and Delivery Service, Genisys Credit Union, and many other community organizations around Oakland County. 1-800-Self-Storage.com is providing the boxes for coat drop-off sites around the county. Local Real Estate One and Max Broock Realtors offices, and all of the Genisys Credit Union branches throughout Oakland County served as drop-off sites also.
