Though it is fall, we are experiencing some cold temperatures in the Bluegrass state. I’m already feeling the chill of winter yet to come. While many of us look at a coat as an item that is meant to keep us warm, cozy, and stylish, there are plenty of less fortunate people who don't even have that basic necessity.
Ethan Health is beginning our annual Coat Drive. Donating a winter coat is basically a no-effort way to do a good and charitable deed for someone else. Just make sure that it's in good, wearable condition and that you have cleaned out the pockets. Ideally, you'll even dry clean it before passing the coat on to its new owner, though most places won't require it.
If you're on the fence about whether or not to donate, first a peek in the closet: If you have any coats you haven't worn for years that are just taking up extra space, it's probably time to pass it on. Then, ask yourself this: "Could I still wear this jacket if I wasn't going to donate it?" If the answer is "yes," then it is still in quality condition and you should absolutely give it away to someone who will get better use out of it.
Once you have your pile of coats ready to go, stop by and drop them off at one of our Ethan Health locations! Your donation will keep someone warm and make them see the good in others this season.
