No One Has Ever Become Poor By Giving!

How to Help


Dependable Cleaners – Coats for Colorado is a non-profit, volunteer-based, local organization that depends upon the generosity of many for its success. We are grateful to the many volunteers and participating organizations around Denver that assist us each year by hosting their own coat drives, as well as the enormous effort put forth by staff members at United Way and Dependable Cleaners.

If you are interested in helping, please consider hosting your own coat drive in your office, school, or neighborhood.


We encourage schools, organizations, businesses, neighborhoods, etc. to host coat collections. Please call 303-777-2673 and press 4 for information about Coats for Colorado and leave your email address and phone number, or email us at [email protected]. You can download posters to use on collection boxes, as fliers in your office or neighborhood, or in email blasts to your friends, family, employees, and/or patrons.

Donate Coats

Drop off coats at any of our Dependable Cleaners locations or with any local collection drive you encounter! Coats are accepted between October 1 and November 30. We accept only new and gently used warm winter coats for men, women, and children.

Any individual or organization looking to make a monetary donation to the drive is encouraged to instead purchase a children’s or men’s coat. We are unable to use monetary donations, and your check or cash will be used to purchase a coat of this nature for the drive.
