Coat Closet Event
January 16 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm
One event on January 16, 2021 at 8:30 am
Each winter, Catholic Charities collects and distributes hundreds of winter coats to give to people in need of a little extra warmth. This event is largely made possible by generous donations from local parishes, schools, community groups, and individuals. Volunteers are needed on the day of the event to help set up the Coat Drive and assist with the distribution to clients. Many hands make light work in this large-scale operation. Volunteers will organize coat donations by gender and size, hang up coats, clean, and create a welcoming shopping space for future shoppers.
Age Requirements: Volunteers under the age of 18 must bring a signed parent/guardian waiver (sent in the confirmation email). This year we will not permit any volunteers under the age of 16 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Location: St. Francis Xavier Multipurpose Room (2815 O Street SE, Washington, DC 20020).
Set Up Time and Date: Saturday, November 21st from 8:30am – 11:00am
Distribution Time and Date: Saturday, November 21st from 11:30am – 2:30pm
