2020 Coat Drive

Last year, you helped us provide nearly 250 women with a new coat at our Annual Coat Giveaway! This year, our goal is to collect a total of 300 coats to ensure that every woman who arrives at our doors will be met with dignity, welcome, and a warm winter coat.

We are asking for your help collecting donations of new and gently-loved coats. We have a special need this year for additional coats in sizes 3X and above.

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Check out our wishlist through WomanWithin. Order a coat and have it shipped directly to the Village at:
    c/o Donna-Marie Thompson
    N Street Village
    1333 N Street NW
    Washington, D.C. 20005
  2. Donate a gently-loved coat that meets the following criteria:
    Clean and without flaws
    No rips, holes, tears, or snags
    No stains or discoloration
    Zipper and/or buttons are fully functional
    No broken/missing fasteners
    Check pockets to ensure that there are no personal items
  3. Donate directly to help us purchase additional coats for residents and clients with special needs and/or sizing.

We ask that all coats be delivered by Wednesday October 28, 2020. To schedule a drop-off appointment or to get more information, please contact Donna-Marie Thompson at (202) 939-2058 or by email at dthompson@nstreetvillage.org.

Thank you for your generosity and kindness.
