A Winter Coat Can Provide More Than Just Warmth

Here at Mother Manifesto, we believe that loving outside yourself takes courage and compassion and this winter season we would like to encourage you to take a break from the holiday hustle to give back to the community around you.

Did you know one in five children in America live in poverty and many families consider a warm winter coat an “extra” budget item? Many seniors and homeless Americans also experience winter with less than adequate clothing.

Coat drives are no new thing nor are they scarce - but did you know they are super easy to host? There are several companies that even provide resources to start your own and some organizations even take your donations and use them to make new coats for children.

If you’re interested in getting more involved in your local community by donating a few of your family’s gently used coats (Lawd knows my kids are already too big for last year’s!), hosting your own drive or making a donation this season, we have put together a list of a few wonderful organizations below. And let us know, how you like to give back during the holiday season!
