Find your inner power by helping others

Host a collection for Makenzie's Coat Closet.  If you are a business, church, school or neighborhood, we need your help to collect gently used coats, hats, scarves and gloves.

The mission of Makenzie's Coat Closet is to ensure that the less fortunate have a means to ensure that they have a coat to keep themselves warm. Every coat donated is given away free of charge to anyone that needs assistance.

Makenzie's Coat Closet was founded in 2006, since then over 25,000 coats and countless hats, scarves and gloves have been collected and distributed to those in need.

The 2015 Coat Drive is in full swing for this year. This year we are only collecting heavy winter coats, hats, scarves, gloves and hoodies.  No light-weight coats please.  Please contact us to get involved.
