CTL and One Warm Coat  Help People in Need Stay Warm

Donate Coats or Money Between September 19 and December 1 to Help Local Families In Time for Winter Weather

Nearly 50 million Americans are currently living in poverty and for these families and individuals, a warm coat is a budget extra they simply cannot afford. That’s why CTL is inviting area residents to make a difference in their neighbor’s lives by donating coats and dollars during their upcoming coat drive.

CTL is working with One Warm Coat to collect clean, gently used warm coats, and dollars to support the coat drive program, which will benefit local families in the Portland, Oregon area.

“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 CTL, 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.

Those wishing to donate may drop off their extra coat (or coats!) at CTL, 9700 SW Harvest Court, Building 100, Beaverton, OR, 97005 anytime between 8am and 5pm, Monday through Friday. Additionally, checks or cash can be dropped off at CTL in their One Warm Coat donation box located in the front office. Every $5 donated helps One Warm Coat to warm 10 people. All donations will be accepted between September 19 and December 1, 2016. Donations are tax deductible and receipts will be available.

Donated coats and money collected at CTL will be given to the Northwest Regional Education Service District for distribution to local children and adults in need. CTL encourages customers who aren’t able to donate in person to contribute by text or via the One Warm Coat Website.
