Bethlehem Dental Center and One Warm Coat®, warming communities…one coat at a time.
Forty-five million Americans are currently living in poverty. For these families and individuals, a warm coat is a budget extra they simply cannot afford. Bethlehem Dental Center and area residents made a difference in Bethlehem's neighbor’s lives by donating coats and dollars during our December 2015 coat drive!
Bethlehem Dental Center worked with One Warm Coat to collect clean, gently used warm coats to support the coat drive program during November and December 2015. All donated coats, which Bethlehem Dental Center collected over 50 coats, were given to a local agency for distribution to local children and adults in need. You can also help provide a warmer winter by texting “WARM” to 80100 to donate $10 to One Warm Coat or by visiting http://www.onewarmcoat.org/donate.
“For more than 20 years we have been working to provide a warm coat to anyone who needs one. We are so thankful for our many coat drive ambassadors, like Bethlehem Dental Center, who volunteer their time, resources and energy to help their neighbors in need. Together, we can reach our goal of warming one million people each winter, one community at a time!” commented Jennifer Stockard, President and Chief Executive Officer of One Warm Coat.
One Warm Coat is a national non-profit organization that works to provide a free, warm coat to any person in need and raises awareness of the vital need for warm coats. One Warm Coat supports individuals, groups, companies and organizations across the country by providing the tools and resources needed to hold a successful coat drive. Coats are distributed in the communities where they were collected, to any person in need, without charge, discrimination or obligation. Since its inception in 1992, One Warm Coat has worked with its volunteers to give away over 4 million coats. http://www.onewarmcoat.org
