Global Care Foundation Winter Coat Collection
In October 2012, The Global Care Foundation joined in on a long-standing tradition to keep Coloradoans warm during the winter months by collecting new and gently used warm winter coats for Coats for Colorado, a non-profit organization that provides winter coats at no cost to Coloradoans of all ages. The Winter Coat Collection took place in the lobby of the Global Communications Group headquarters. The whole GCG team contributed both their time and winter coats to make this program successful.
“The Global Care Foundation is honored to partner with Coats for Colorado and collect warm winter coats this season,” said Joel St. Germain, founder of the Global Care Foundation. “With winter knocking on our door, it is urgent that we collect as many coats as possible for our fellow Coloradoans in need.”
All of the coats donated at the Global Care Foundation’s coat drive were taken to a local Dependable Cleaners location and from there distributed through their non-profit subsidiary, Coats for Colorado. Coats for Colorado distributed the coats to charitable organizations, homeless shelters and thousands of Coloradoans in need.
Since 1982, Coats for Colorado has collected and donated more than 1.8 million coats and is recognized as the state’s largest coat drive and the nation’s largest per capita coat drive.
