Ashburn, Va (October 29, 2015) – The Loudoun County Department of Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management invites you to bring your clean, gently used coats, jackets, scarves, winter hats, gloves and mittens to 801 Sycolin Road, Ste 200, weekdays through November 6, 2015 between 8:00am-4:00pm. The process is simple: drop off your extra winter apparel and we take care of the rest. All donated items will be given to Mobile Hope Loudoun for distribution to local young people in need. If you do not have a coat or winter accessories to donate, you can still help by texting “COAT” to 80100 to donate $5 to One Warm Coat.
One Warm Coat is national non-profit organization that supports and encourages coat drives. It helps individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country collect coats and deliver them to local agencies. More than four million coats have been provided to those in need at no cost since its inception in 1992, for more information visit www.onewarmcoat.org.
Mobile Hope Loudoun is designed to support the needs of precariously housed, homeless and at risk youth living in Loudoun County. To assist the estimated 1,100 young students that were identified in 2014 as homeless or precariously housed, the staff of Mobile Hope Loudoun fostered partnerships with Loudoun County Public Schools, the faith community, police and fire departments, government officials, healthcare providers and community leaders. These partnerships helped create ways for this fragile population to have access to daily essentials including:
• Food • School Supplies • Clothes
• Medical Care • Hygiene Products
