Project Warm Us

We collect warm items such as coats, blankets and shoes to help keep the homeless warm during the cold winter months.  Many of the people we serve are shelterless, living in Dallas, Texas and the surrounding metroplex.  We also collect for people living in shelters and orphanages.  Donations are welcome at any time, however our biggest collection time starts around the end of August each year and ends the day before Thanksgiving.

Statistics from the Dallas area homeless count show that veteran homelessness is down, chronic homelessness and families are up. We are collecting items for men, women and children.  Our goal is to collect 3,141 items by Thanksgiving 2015.  Not familiar with Project Warm Us?

How can I help?

There are many ways to help keep the homeless warm during the winter months.  Every single item we receive is a huge help toward our mission.  If every person that heard of Project Warm Us donated at least one item, we would exceed our goal every year.  Could you help in one of these ways?
