N Street Village is taking the opportunity to help warm up the lives of DC women during winter. Preparations have already begun for our Annual Coat Drive. Last week, volunteers from Reed Smith helped out by sorting and counting coats that we have in stock.
This year we are collecting 208 coats to ensure that each woman who walks through our doors receives a warm coat this winter.
We are asking for your help with the donation of new and gently loved coats varying in size from small to 6X.
There are many ways to support the Coat Drive. While we greatly and appreciate all donations, getting something brand new is special to way to spread holiday cheer to someone in need. If you would like to order a coat, we have made easy for you. Please visit our N Street Village Coat Drive Wish List on Amazon. Or, if you have gently used coat to share please make note of the following:
- Make sure it is clean and without flaws
- No rips, holes, tears, snags
- No stains or discoloration
- Check the zipper and/or buttons to make sure they are functional
- Make sure there are no broken/missing fasteners
- Check pockets to ensure that there are not any accidental donations of personal items
We ask that all coats be delivered by Wednesday October 24, 2018 by 2:00pm. To schedule a drop-off appointment or get more information, please contact Donna-Marie Thompson at (202) 939-2058 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us to maintain our standard of care for all the members of our community!
Thank you all for your generosity and kindness.
