What is Drive for Coats?

Every winter, as temperatures drop, millions of Americans are forced to choose between warm clothing and everyday necessities, such as rent and food. Despite the improving economy, the U.S. Census Bureau still reports that the poverty rate is 12.7%. A warm coat is a luxury that many families simply cannot afford.

In response, ArcticStart is partnering with retailers across the U.S. to collect coat donations in-stores. To ensure proper delivery of all donations, we have partnered with One Warm Coat.
