Spreading Warmth One Coat at a TimeAlameda, California, November, 15th, 2017 – Pinot’s Palette Alameda is hosting a coat drive to collect clean, gently worn, warm coats on November and December between 11:30 AM and 7:00PM at 2210 D South Shore Center. Area residents are invited to make a difference in our local community by donating to the coat drive and helping Pinot’s Palette Alameda reach their goal of collecting 100 coats and $500.00 dollars.
“We are so excited about our upcoming One Warm Coat drive and hope the community will support us. There are nearly 50 million Americans currently living in poverty and struggling to provide a warm coat for themselves or their families. One Warm Coat’s program helps us keep all of the coats we collect in this community, which will make a big difference for our neighbors who need a coat” said Coat Drive Ambassador and Director of Fun, Sean Gabriel .
