Help us support Coats of Kindness!
Eric Wenzel joins us today to talk about Coats of Kindness, a charity in St. Paul. The local nonprofit started six years ago based off a cancer event and pay-it-forward initiative at Eric’s church. His kids were involved from the beginning and it’s been growing ever since. This year, they’re close to giving away 10,000 jackets throughout the Midwest, mostly within the Twin Cities. Donations vary from individual contributions, small businesses, and Cub Scout troops.
The coats go directly to shelters and other locations. It’s not exactly like a food pantry. It’s a discount store that counties subsidize. Additionally, they’re teaming up with a homeless project in Minneapolis with thirteen buildings and 3,000 residents.
If you have a coat you’d like to drop off at our office, give us a call at 651-789-5001 or visit CoatsofKindness.org for their dropoff sites. We’d be happy to pick up your donation if you can’t get to our office or a drop off site, too. We hope to hear from you soon!
