Donations for the 32nd annual “Coats for the Cold” coat drive are being accepted until November 30th, 2019. 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.
1-800-Self-Storage.com, is providing the boxes for coat drop-off sites around the county, and COWS (Container on Wheels Mobile Storage) is providing their portable storage units at drop-off sites as well. Local Real Estate One offices, and all of the Genisys Credit Union branches throughout Oakland County will also serve as drop-off sites.
“Coats for the Cold is an easy way for the community to reach out and help someone less fortunate stay warm this winter,” Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard said. “For the past 31 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.”
