The "Coats for the Cold" coat drive is sponsored by the Oakland County Sheriff's Office, in partnership with 1-800-MINI-STORAGE, COWS (Container on Wheels Mobile Storage), Real Estate One, Genisys Credit Union, 89X Detroit, 101 WRIF Detroit, and many other community organizations around Oakland County. 1-800-MINI-STORAGE , is providing the boxes for coat drop-off sites around the county, and COWS is providing their portable storage units at several drop-off sites as well.

Local Real Estate One offices, and all of the Genisys Credit Union branches throughout Oakland County served as drop-off sites also.  We are grateful to all of our partners for their support!

"Coats for the Cold is an easy way for the community to reach out and help someone less fortunate stay warm this winter," Sheriff Bouchard said. "For the past 28 years, we have worked with local charitable 

organizations to provide free cCOATS4COLD.jpgoats to those in need.  The community's generosity has been wonderful every year."

The new or clean, used coats collected during the month of November will be given to numerous different charitable organizations who will then distribute the coats to those most in need at no cost.
