KARM Coats for the Cold

KARM Coats for the Cold Coat Collection Dates are October 19 – November 14. Donate your used coats at any KARM Stores or Prestige Cleaners locations!

Coats for the Cold is an annual coat drive to collect thousands of coats for those in need in our area. The community is invited to donate used men’s, women’s and children’s coats at any KARM Stores location or any Prestige Cleaners location during designated coat drive weeks each fall. Those in need of a coat are encouraged to contact local service agencies or churches to receive a coat voucher, then shop at any KARM Stores location with the voucher during the coat distribution dates listed below.

Coat Collection Dates: Monday, October 19 —  Saturday, November 14

Drop off at any KARM Stores or Prestige Cleaners location in the provided carts.

Coat Distribution Dates: Monday, November 9 — Saturday, December 5

Bring a coat voucher to any KARM Stores location to select a coat.

  • How can I get a coat voucher? Many area service agencies and churches participate as coat voucher partners. Please contact your local church or social worker to inquire about coat vouchers.
  • How does my organization participate in the coat drive? Feel free to collect coats at your location, then bring them to any KARM Stores or Prestige Cleaners location by November 14th.
  • How do I get a poster to use with our coat drive? We’ve created several different sizes of posters you can download and print.
  • Are volunteers needed to help with the coat drive? Yes! It takes many hands to sort and hang thousands of coats!  Opportunities will be available to help at all KARM Stores locations beginning on October 26th. Select a day, time and location to serve and provide the information requested on the KARM website in the “Coats for the Cold Volunteer Opportunities” to schedule your volunteer experience online.
