The One Warm Coat program collects new and gently used coats for people in need of warm outer wear. Last year One Warm Coat collected and distributed nearly 600,000 coats!
Now Orinda residents can help this worthwhile cause by bringing a gently worn or new coat/jacket in all sizes for men, women and children to the Orinda Association Office, 26 Orinda Way, lower level of the Library Plaza across from the elevator.
A bin will be set up outside of the office starting Nov. 1 and continuing through Dec. 21. All coats will be delivered to Alameda County Social Services North County on Dec. 21.
The social services agency promotes self-sufficiency and provides continuing economic assistance through public and private sector partnerships while fostering a work force development system that supports individuals and families.
