Connecticut: Your gently used winter coat can make a difference

Trailblazer Branford, Denali Cheshire, and Denali Wakefield "are collecting clean, gently used coats and jackets as part of the One Warm Coat community service project," according to a release.
"Coats of all shapes sizes are welcome. One Warm Coat is dedicated to distributing reusable coats, free of charge, directly to local children and adults. The program is an easy way for you and your family to pass along coats and jackets that you no longer need."
to donate, just bring your clean, gently used coats and jackets to any of these locations from Nov. 21 through Dec. 2.
Trailblazer Branford’s coats will be given to Harbor Health Services Clothing, while Denali Cheshire coats will go to Master's Manna, Inc., and Denali Wakefield coats will go to local agencies in need, the release said.
While in any of these participating store locations, take 10 percent off a purchase when making a coat donation. No purchase is necessary.
“More people than ever need help these days. I am proud of the thousands of coat drive organizers whose creativity and generosity of spirit are making a real difference in their own communities.” said Sherri Wood, President of One Warm Coat, also in the release.
One Warm Coat is national non-profit organization that supports and encourages coat drives. It helps individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country collect coats and deliver them to local agencies that distribute the coats free to people in need. More than one million coats have been provided to those in need at no cost since its inception in 1992.

Trailblazer is located on the Branford Green at 1004 Main St  203.488.0802

Denali Cheshire is at l Maplecroft Plaza - 151 Highland Ave.

I love the look of this coat. I just found some great Womens Coats at Burlington Coat Factory. They had amazing deals and I got a style I loved for $40 less than I had seen it for anywhere else.
