As a quilter, knowing that the quilts I donate bring warmth and comfort to those in need is what drives me to continue to make and donate quilts year after year. As I get ready to head to Big Canoe for a visit, I was reading the small newsletter they distribute monthly and came across and article on coat collection for donation. At the time we left Minneapolis, we donated a number of coats to the Salvation Army but we still have a few at Big Canoe that have been sitting unused for over 2 years. I only kept my favorite ones but I plan to look through the closet and find one or two to donate.
Do you have any you could donate? Check out the One Warm Coat website and see if there is a collection center near you.
