Collection drive runs Sept 10 – 19 and each donor gets a $25 gift certificate from Elisa B.
Elisa B., a womenswear store in Old Pasadena, has teamed up with the charity One Warm Coat to distribute clean, gently used coats to adults and children in need this winter.
The coat drive begins on Friday, September 10 in conjunction with One Colorado's Fashion's Night Out celebration. Each donor will get a $25 gift certificate in exchange for the coat they drop off. Coats will be accepted through Sunday, September 19.
"This is a great opportunity for women to pass along coats they are no longer wearing," said store owner Elisa Bruley. "The gift certificate is a reward for spreading good coat karma."
One Warm Coat started in 1992 and has since prompted collection drives throughout North America that have resulted in the distribution of more than one million coats. Coats donated through Elisa B. will be delivered to The Los Angeles Mission and Children of the Night.
