Sheriff’s Office Kicks Off ‘Coats for the Cold’ Campaign

Oakland County Sheriff Michael J. Bouchard is announcing the 33rd year of the “Coats for the Cold” Coat Drive. The Coat Drive is running from Nov. 1-30, 2020.

The “Coats for the Cold” coat drive is sponsored by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with 1-800-Self-Storage.com, McKenzie Moving, Real Estate One, Genisys Credit Union, and many other community organizations around Oakland County. 1-800-Self-Storage.com, is providing the boxes for coat drop-off sites around the county. Local Real Estate One offices, and all of the Genisys Credit Union branches throughout Oakland County served as drop-off sites also.  We are grateful to all of our partners for their support!

“Coats for the Cold is an easy way for the community to reach out and help someone less fortunate stay warm this winter,” Sheriff Bouchard said. “For the past 32 years, we have worked with local charitable organizations to provide free coats to those in need. The community’s generosity has been wonderful every year.”

There are volunteer opportunities available for individuals wishing to help with the coat drive this year. To sign up, please go to the sign-up genius link here.  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0b4faaa72faafa7-coats

The new or clean, used coats collected during the month of November will be given to numerous different charitable organizations who will then distribute the coats to those most in need at no cost.
