No One Has Ever Become Poor By Giving!

Host Your Own Event


Hosting a collection drive of your own is the best way to participate in Coats for Colorado. Organizing your own drive is easy:

Decide when you would like to host your drive – it can be as long or as short as you’d like, and you can collect in your neighborhood, office, or school.

  1. Set up your collection area: Here’s your opportunity to get creative!  Free posters can be downloaded below in two sizes for you to “brand" your collection area with Coats for Colorado materials. If you’re in an office that has street traffic, place a poster in your window; if you are in a large building with a common break room, post it  wherever you’ll get the most notice. We also encourage you to use them in an email to employees or patrons, or as printouts for school children.

  2. Collect your coats: Coats for Colorado accepts only new and gently used warm winter coats for men, women, and children. We are unable to accept financial donations. Please use any money you collect to purchase new or gently used children’s and men’s coats – these two categories receive the fewest donations, and we always need more.

  3. Drop your coats off: Once your drive is complete, your coats can be taken to any Dependable Cleaners location for drop off. All donations are due by November 30.
