Warm It Up Wednesday

October 14, 2019

Mark your calendars for a special day: Wednesday, October 16 is Warm It Up Wednesday! We'll be 30 days away from the last full day to donate new or gently used coats to the Charlotte Coat Drive, and we'd love for you to be a part of it with us.

To show your support, we're asking you to change your Instagram or Facebook profile photo to the red coat, a symbol of the Coat Drive, to raise awareness of the campaign. While we've collected hundreds of coats so far, we still need more to reach our goal of 5,000.

How to Participate in Warm It Up Wednesday

  • Grab the Coat icon from Facebook or Instagram: here or here
  • Change your Instagram and/or Facebook profile photo to the coat icon on Wednesday, October 16. (And keep it up as long as you'd like!).
  • Encourage your friends, family, co-workers and more to do the same. Use it as an easy and fun way to start a conversation to ask for new/gently used coat donations.
  • Pat yourself on the back for supporting a cause that will help men, women & children stay warm this fall/winter!

Please help us continue to spread the word. Share this post, talk about it with friends, or follow along on Facebook to share our posts.

Thank you again for your support, and thank you to all of our wonderful barrel partners. You bring the warmth to what we do!
