Word Up Coat & Gift Card Drive


Have extra coats, scarves, and gloves from all that "spring cleaning" you've done while home? Bring it down to our coat (and gift card) drive this Saturday! We'll be collecting items to distribute to our community members, including food for community fridges, personal hygiene products, and new socks and underwear (also can be donated but must be new). 

Along with physical items, we have partnered with NMIC in raising funds to provide families with gift cards. Unlike toy drives, the gift card fundraiser empowers parents by allowing them to personally buy their child just the right gift. NMIC serves over 14,000 clients annually. This year has been especially challenging for many of our community members. We're hoping to alleviate some of the holiday stress. We only have until December 21 to raise $1,000 to ensure we are able to provide 40 families with $20 gift cards! Your donation will help bring a bit of joy to a family in need. For that, we are immensely grateful.

So stop by Saturday from 12-6pm to drop off your items, distribute items, and have a cookout with @communitycoachdave! And donate online to help families in our community this holiday season!
