Coat Drive at Michigan Storage Centers in Oak Park

(MSC, Oct. 26, 2018)

Oak Park, MI– Michigan Storage Centers is hosting a coat drive to collect clean, gently worn, warm coats on 11/4/2018 to 11/30/2018 between Mon – Fri 9am to 6pm, Sat 9am to 3pm and Sun 1pm to 5pm at 15300 W 8 Mile Rd, Oak Park. Area residents are invited to make a difference in our local community by donating to the coat drive and helping Michigan Storage Centers reach their goal of collecting 300 coats, scarfs, gloves, hats and 300 dollars.

“We are so excited about our upcoming One Warm Coat drive and hope the community will support us.  There are nearly 50 million Americans currently living in poverty and struggling to provide a warm coat for themselves or their families.  One Warm Coat’s program helps us keep all of the coats we collect in this community, which will make a big difference for our neighbors who need a coat” said Coat Drive Ambassador and Property Manager, Katrina Suddeth.

Customers who do not have a coat to donate can still get involved:

~Text “WARM” to 80100 to donate $10 to One Warm Coat

~Visit onewarmcoat.org/donate

All current Michigan Storage Centers customers who donate coats or dollars will receive $20 voucher they can use towards current or future rent in the next 12 months. New customers who rent with us an donate will also receive a free lock with move in.  

Each year, hundreds of thousands of gently worn coats are distributed across North America to children, women and men in need through One Warm Coat’s Coat Drive program. “We are so grateful for our partners like Michigan Storage Centers!  It is because of our incredible volunteers that we have been around for more than 25 years, helping get coats to our neighbors who need them. Thanks to Michigan Storage Center’s efforts, many people in this community will have a much warmer winter,” commented Jennifer Stockard, President and Chief Executive Officer of One Warm Coat.

One Warm Coat is a national non-profit organization that works to provide a free, warm coat to any person in need and raises awareness of the vital need for warm coats.  One Warm Coat supports individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country by providing the tools and resources needed to hold a successful coat drive.  Coats are distributed in the communities where they were collected, to any person in need, without charge, discrimination or obligation. Over the past 26 years, One Warm Coat has worked with its volunteers to give away more than 5 million coats.
