Give the Gift of Warmth Winter Coat Drive 2016

coat-drive-ad-penguinIn its 13th year, the Give the Gift of Warmth Winter Coat Drive provides winter coats, jackets, hats, mittens and boots FREE to families and people in need throughout the Hudson Valley.

Participate two ways:

TO GIVE:  In 2015, RUPCO gave away 250 winter coats in just four hours! In 2014, the Annual Coat Drive gave away over 1600 pieces of winter gear. Demand remains high and you can help by donating nearly new winter gear to MidHudson Subaru or giving to our Good360 online Wish List. 

TO GET:  In 2016, RUPCO is hosting its Winter Coat Distribution Day on Tuesday, December 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Kirkland, 2 Main Street, Kingston. This event is free and open to the public and coincides with the Application Support Day for Housing Choice Voucher Program.

We do our best to provide a variety of sizes from infants to adult, men and women. However, you may need to visit other Winter Coat Drive Distribution Days around the Hudson Valley to find what you need:
