Turtle Fur x One Warm Coat
Through our giving initiative, Project Warmth, we are always in search of new organizations that are in need of cold weather gear. What began in 2008 as a small, local project donating warm hats and accessories to those in need, Project Warmth has now reached 150+ organizations across 35+ states. Last year, we surpassed our 100,000th donation since Project Warmth’s inception 12 years ago!
A couple months back, we got in touch with an organization called One Warm Coat. They provide coats to people in need through coat drives, bulk donation, nonprofit partnerships, and a crisis coat fund. They work with groups around the country - helping businesses organize and execute coat drives and managing the donations, and connecting groups with shelters and other organizations in need of products. The latter is how we began our partnership with them.
We reached out to One Warm Coat in August to help us with a donation of roughly 2000 pairs of socks. They were able to help us find four great organizations that could use the products to support their local communities. Each organization listed below received roughly 575 pairs of socks and 25 hats.
- Forever Lasting Rainbow | Maryland
- White Pony Express | California
- Partnership With Native Americans | South Dakota
- Mahogany CARES Foundation Inc. | Wisconsin
We are so appreciative of all the work that One Warm Coat does. Now, more than ever, it's imperative that we support our communities as we go through unprecedented times. The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting millions of lives, and as many families are now facing new hardships, donations of warm winter gear are needed now more than ever.
