All of us here at Charlotte Mechanical are committed to helping people in need stay warm each winter. This is one of our favorite programs that we support and participate in every year. One Warm Coat is a national non-profit organization that supports and encourages coat drives. It helps individuals, groups, companies, and organizations across the country collect coats and deliver them to local agencies that distribute the coats free to people in need. More than 1 million coats have been provided to those in need at no cost since its inception in 1992.

Where the Coats Will Go

Crisis Assistance Ministry will distribute the coats. This organization was founded in 1975 and its community outreach mission holds strong today: to provide assistance and advocacy for people in financial crisis, helping move them toward self-sufficiency. You can drop off new or gently-used coats at many locations around Greater Charlotte.

Charlotte Mechanical has collected over 8,700 coats in the last six years in partnership with One Warm Coat and is the largest Charlotte coat drive. This past year in 2016, we collected 2,700 coats! Thank you so much for your support.

The Charlotte Coat Drive 2017 Headquarters is Dilworth Neighborhood Grille.
