Bundle Up Coat & Blanket Drive

October 22, 2017 @ 10:00 am - October 27, 2017 @ 8:00 pm

Help your fellow Kansas Citians bundle up! In the spirit of our latest Smokestack Series release, Bundle Up Barleywine, we’ll be partnering with Project Warmth KC for a coat & blanket drive October 22nd-27th! We’ll be accepting donations of new, gently used and clean coats and blankets at our Tours & Rec Center. Make a donation, and receive a cozy reward of your own! Acceptable donations and Project Warmth information:

Project Warmth concentrates on coats and blankets.  We will gladly accept gloves, mittens, winter hats and scarves. The greatest need continues to be in coat sizes for toddlers, teenagers and men.

 

Donated items do not have to be new.  We gladly accept "gently used" coats (no hangers please) and blankets, we only ask that they be clean and in good condition. Items donated will not be cleaned before distribution. (All other clothing items will be given to our Project Warmth partners, the Salvation Army, for re-sale in their thrift stores and/or shared with other local agencies.) All items collected are distributed free of charge to Agencies in the Greater Kansas City area by The Salvation Army.

 

Cash donations are always much appreciated and are used to help pay rent, utility costs for both heating and cooling and more throughout the year. All financial donations are managed and distributed to more than 65 qualifying agencies in the eight-county metropolitan area through the Mid America Assistance Coalition.
