2020 Coat Drive Updates
This winter, more than ever, we need your help to ensure all of our community's children are warm.
In an effort to reduce the risk of exposure to illness this fall and winter, the Cabarrus Partnership for Children will not be accepting coats, socks, underwear, mittens or hats during our 14th Annual Cuddle up Coat Drive. Instead, we will be collecting checks (written to the Cabarrus Partnership for Children), online donations, gift cards and Kohl's Cash so we can buy new winter coats and clothing items to distribute to children in need this winter.
The Need is greater than ever
During a typical winter, our organization distributes more than 400 coats and warm clothing items to children throughout Cabarrus County. These items are usually donated by hundreds of different community members and companies who want to help keep children warm in the winter.
This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to do things very differently in order to protect the health of our staff, children and families we serve. By removing our interactions with hundreds of coats and clothing items that have been handled by hundreds of different people, we will be able to reduce everyone's exposure to all illnesses this winter, while still getting winter coats and clothing items to the children who need them most.
If you are able to support our children's coat drive through monetary donations, gift card donations or Kohl's Cash this year, please view the details below:
