Did you know that you can help Project Warm Us collect coats, blankets and other warm clothing items without hosting a drop spot? For us to meet our annual goal of collecting thousands of items, we depend on many people spreading the word for us. Project Warm Us started with two people spreading the word within their circle of friends and posting needs on social media. In the first year, we met our goal of 5,723 coats and blankets in just six weeks! Here’s the simplest way to help us.
Ask for warm items.
Let your friends, family and coworkers know you’re collecting for a short period of time. Simply ask them to give out of their excess. Everyone will have at least one item they could donate, and one does make a difference. The biggest need is blankets and men’s coats, but we will place anything we get.
Collect the donations.
Large, unscented trash bags are great for donations. Let people know when and where you’re collecting.
Drop off your donations.
You can drop your donations at any of our drop spots. Most are porch drop offs so you can drop them at any time.
There are literally thousands of unsheltered homeless people in the Dallas area that will appreciate the warm items. Thank you so much for helping us!
