Our Mission

Makenzie's Coat Closet is in full swing for the 2014 coat drive.  In addition to our annual drive, we are working as a partnership with Miles for Merry Miracles to provide 750 Angel's for The Salvation Army with new coats.

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.

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.
