Pitch submissions by individual members of the community should be for civic change that will create positive community impact − compelling, innovative and wild ideas that will make our region a better place. Initiatives cannot be proposed by or on behalf of an organization.

United Way Warm Coats Warm Hearts Coat Drive at BBC!

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015
Warm Coats Warm Hearts Coat Drive
Keeping kids warm – and in school

Student attendance is crucial for the learning process. When students do not have coats or other winter apparel during the winter months, it may prevent them from attending school. United Way of Greater Cleveland is accepting the challenge by leading a winter coat and apparel drive for CMSD investment schools from November 16th to December 11th.

We need heroes! Your organization can help support this effort by conducting a winter apparel drive.

The goal is to secure new or gently used coats and other winter apparel (gloves, hats, etc.) for our K-8 Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) investment schools scholars.

Get the details and sign up now to start a drive

If your organization cannot conduct a drive you can still support this effort by dropping off a new or gently used coat and other winter apparel at Burten, Bell, Carr Development, Inc or other locations

View drop-off locations

Your support with this effort for our CMSD scholars is greatly appreciated.

Be a CLE #CoatHero!
