COAT RACK - 2nd Annual Charity Coat Drive

 

Prizes | How It Works | Questions

COAT RACK is back for it's 2nd year! Last year we had an amazing response, collecting over 100 coats, and this year we want to collect even more! Our goal is to make sure as many Calgarians as possible have a safe and warm winter. Drop off your gently used or new winter coats or donate online and be entered to win 1 of 6 incredible sewing and non-sewing prize baskets! 

This year we reached out to other small businesses in our community and put together some delightful prizes, so whether you sew or not there is something for you!

Part of our online community? You have a chance to win too! Give on our COAT RACK Donations page and each donation enters you to win an online pattern prize pack from Fibre Mood. All online donations will be going to the Calgary Food Bank.

Questions

Q: Last year you took winter accessories, will you be doing that again this year? A: We will not be collecting accessories this year, only coats and online donations. 

Q: Will you accept any type of coat? A: Please only bring coats that are suitable for winter in Calgary. Our goal is to provide warmth and safety to our fellow Calgarians this winter, and that means we need coats that can handle our chilly temps. 

Q: How many coats can I bring in? A: There is no limit on how many coats you can bring in, and each one will get you a prize entry (same goes for online donations). However, please know that our staff reserve the right to deem coats unusable, either for weather conditions or physical condition of coat. 

Q: Who will the coats be donated to? A: We are still finalizing which organizations the coats will go to. We received so many last year that we want to check with smaller organizations to make sure we don't overwhelm them with donations they can't handle. Similar to last year we will split the coats between a woman's focused group, a boots-on-the-ground group, and Project Warmth Society of Alberta. All online donations will go directly to the Calgary Food Bank.

Q: Do you take coats for children? A: We sure do! If you have winter coats that your little ones have outgrown, no matter what size, we will take them.

Q: I've never been to your store before, where are you and what are your hours? A: You can find all this info on our VISIT US page. 

Q: What specifically is in each prize pack? A: Watch our social media for weekly breakdowns of each prize pack!
