What You Need To Do To Donate Your Coat
If you're looking for a way to help the less fortunate in your community, consider donating your old coats and sweaters to a charity. With over half of all coats donated in your neighborhood, we're sure you can find a local charity in your area that would benefit from your gift. Donating your coat is one way to help yourself keep warm this winter, while helping out others. The following article will discuss what you need to do in order to donate your coat.
To begin, you should check Charity Navigator to see if there are any complaints about the nonprofit you're donating your coat to. If there are, they should be able to let you know if the nonprofit is in good standing. Next, you'll need to visit your local city hall to inquire about winter coat donation programs. You can usually find the information by visiting the city's chamber of commerce, or even searching their website. Also, you can call each nonprofit to see which ones are accepting coats. Alternatively, you can see which nonprofits are accepting coats during the coat drive on Giving Digitized and send it directly to the nonprofits from any store of your choosing.
Donating your coat ensures that you're doing your part to help those in your community who need it most. Another benefit of donating your coat is that you'll be helping out people who are less fortunate than you, who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford a new coat on their own.
