Have “One Warm Coat”? Girl Scouts Will Be Collecting Reusable Coats Saturday
Burien Girl Scouts will be holding a “One Warm Coat” drive this Saturday from 10am – 3pm at the Kids’ Day at the Burien Fire Station, located at 15100 8th Ave SW. .
They’re asking residents to bring clean, reusable coats to drop off at collection boxes at the event, on behalf of Transform Burien Clothing Closet.
“One Warm Coat” started out in 1992 as a Thanksgiving Weekend coat drive in San Francisco. Since then, more than 1 Million coats have been donated in thousands of local communities across North America. Each coat drive has the same intent — to collect coats that will be GIVEN to those in need.
