Distributors & Partners
The distribution of coats, blankets and other warm items to the homeless and impoverished is an ongoing process. We currently use organizations that are already doing great work in serving the homeless. We chose these organizations because they’re established and we’ve worked with them before with very positive results.
Our Main Partner
Our Calling is taking all of the adult sized coats and blankets that we can provide to them. Our Calling helps the homeless in many ways, reaching out to the Dallas area homeless community with search and rescue missions. They will distribute the coats and blankets on Thanksgiving Day during the turkey day lunch & dinner where they serve and enjoy friendship with hundreds of downtown Dallas’s homeless.
Check out their website to learn more about the wonderful work they’re doing. They also have a volunteer schedule for adults and families to participate. Sign up now!

Partners & Distributors
Although the majority of our donations go to OurCalling, we do occasionally partner with other organizations when they have a need or we get an excess of items. These are our secondary partners.
Friends of the Family
Friends of the Family is dedicated to providing compassionate, comprehensive services to those impacted by rape, sexual abuse, and domestic violence, while partnering with our community to promote safety, healing, and prevention. They have a shelter full of women and children who are greatly blessed by the coats we are able to provide.dcfof.orgDCFOF on Facebook
The Samaritan Inn
The Samaritan Inn will get any of the leftover adult size coats and many of the kids coats. They can also take the additional blankets. The Samaritan Inn is more than just a place to spend the night. It is a holistic program that teaches self-sufficiency and life skills. This is the only homeless shelter in Collin County.thesamaritaninn.orgSam Inn on Facebook
Mission Arlington is doing some amazing work with the homeless and impoverished. They have been a huge distributor of children’s coats. Most of our adult coats go to the shelterless homeless and we’re usually getting about half of our donations in kid’s sizes.missionarlington.orgMA on Facebook
Many of our blankets go to Operation Care as part of their Christmas party. For more details on volunteering for that event, see their website.Operation Care Website
Casa Hogar Elim
Casa Hoga Elim is an orphanage in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico that currently has over 100 kids. We’ve gotten a lot of kids coats and baby blankets that will help them greatly. We also go out into the colonias to bring these items into an extremely impoverished area. They have no electricity or running water. Temperatures in Mexico aren’t as extreme as North Texas, but it does get cold enough to generate a need for these items.casahogarelim.comCasa Hogar on Facebook
