What kind of items do you collect?
We collect coats and jackets. We take all sizes for men, women and children.

What if my coat is worn, damaged or dirty?
We take coats in any condition. All coats are washed before being handed out If the coat is past saving, it gets re-purposed through another charity.

Where will my coat end up?
With a proud new owner. Our aim is for individuals to own the coats outright with no cost or obligation. The coats are distributed through partner non-profit organisations. Together, we help men, women and children of all ages and ethnic groups.

Do you collect anything other than coats?
We only collect coats. A coat serves the user during the cold winter days and nights.
