Community Event: One Warm Coat Drive @ Foundation House at Northgate
Dec 2 – Dec 19 all-day
Community Event: One Warm Coat Drive @ Foundation House at Northgate

Foundation House at Northgate is hosting a coat drive to collect clean, gently worn, warm coats December 2rd-20th between 8am and 7pm daily at 11301 3rd Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125. Area residents are invited to make a difference in our local community by donating to the coat drive.

“We are so excited about our upcoming One Warm Coat drive and hope the community will support us. There are nearly 50 million Americans currently living in poverty and struggling to provide a warm coat for themselves or their families. One Warm Coat’s program helps us keep all of the coats we collect in this community, which will make a big difference for our neighbors who need a coat” said Coat Drive Ambassador and Community Relations Director, Lynn Creasy.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of gently worn coats are distributed across North America to children, women and men in need through One Warm Coat’s Coat Drive program. “We are so grateful for our Coat Drive Ambassadors, like Foundation House at Northgate. It is because of our incredible volunteers that we have been around for more than 25 years, helping get coats to our neighbors who need them. Thanks to Foundation House at Northgate efforts, many people in this community will have a much warmer winter”, commented Jennifer Stockard, President and Chief Executive Officer of One Warm Coat.

One Warm Coat is a national non-profit organization that works to provide a free, warm coat to any person in need and raises awareness of the vital need for warm coats. One Warm Coat supports individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country by providing the tools and resources needed to hold a successful coat drive. Coats are distributed in the communities where they were collected, to any person in need, without charge, discrimination or obligation. Over the past 26 years, One Warm Coat has worked with its volunteers to give away more than 5 million coats.

Facilitated by Dori Gillam, Board Chair, Northwest Center for Creative Aging.
What has made your life fun? What did your family do for fun when you were growing up? What was considered a “treat?” What was the best present you ever received as a child? Can you repeat some of those things now, or something like them, either for yourself or to give to others?
Come share your wisdom! These cafés provide an opportunity to converse and connect with others in discussions of universal topics such as gratitude, legacy, happiness and what gives life meaning. Come for one session or more in a facilitated small group conversation.
