The warmth of your generosity could help those less-fortunate this winter. The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is accepting donations of new or clean, used coats through November 30th as part of their 30th annual “Coats for the Cold” coat drive.
Donated coats will be sent to a variety of local charitable organizations, who in turn distribute the coats to community members most in need.
In its 29th year, the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is collecting coats for its “Coats for the Cold” drive through November 30th at over 60 Oakland County locations. The coat drive is sponsored by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with 1-800-MINI-STORAGE, COWS (Container on Wheels Mobile Storage), Real Estate One, Genisys Credit Union, 89X Detroit, 101 WRIF Detroit, and many other community organizations around Oakland County. 1-800-MINI-STORAGE, is providing the boxes for coat drop-off sites around the county, and COWS is providing their portable storage units at several drop-off sites as well.
Every year the coats are distributed to local organizations that help those in need, allowing for donations to directly impact those in the area. Click here to find a drop-off location near you.
