MAKE A DIFFERENCE: DONATE A COAT x MY CREW GIVES WARMTH
We are days away from winter and I am definitely feeling the change in the weather (yes, even here in San Diego). I’ve found myself reaching into my closet to pull out my coats because sweaters simply aren’t cutting it during the very chilly mornings. I used to not own many coats but traveling throughout the years (especially during the winter) has forced me to add a few to my wardrobe. A coat is something that I’ve taken for granted, something I haven’t thought twice about owning. Yet I know I am fortunate to own a few. There are almost 50 million Americans living in poverty, and often buying a coat is not possible when it comes to other basic necessities.
J. Crew is teaming up with One Warm Coat to host a Give-and-Get Event to collect coats to be donated to those in need. Its an easy and free way to give back to someone in need. With the temperatures quickly dropping as we approach winter, a warm coat can be a life saver to someone who cannot afford one. You can make a difference and it’s so easy to participate! Find your local J.Crew Store and bring in your gently worn coat. Whats even sweeter is that J. Crew will give you a coupon for $25 off a in-store purchase (hello Christmas shopping) for your donation. Last year, J.Crew customers donated over 12,000 coats! Talk about making a huge impact. Don’t wait long, because the coat drive ends on December 25th! If you want more information, check out the website here.
Remember that no one should go cold this winter!
