SCCDP First Annual Coat Drive
Did you know that, on any given night in Santa Clara County, the number of homeless tops 7,000?
While the holidays are a time for celebrating with friends and family, they are also a time for reaching out to those less fortunate. As the temperatures drop and darkness falls, what better way to share the warmth of the holiday season than providing a warm coat for someone to wear the rest of the winter?
That’s why the Santa Clara County Democratic Party is organizing its First Annual Coat Drive to collect new or clean, gently used coats. Our focus is on adult sizes, but we will gladly accept coats for all ages. Our hope is that, by joining forces with other community organizations, we can maximize the number of donations we receive and make a real impact in the lives of those around us.
If you are part of a Democratic Club or community group, consider holding a coat drive in conjunction with your holiday party Otherwise, designate a drop-off location in your area, or bring your coats and other winter clothing to the Democratic Party office.
The SCCDP, for example, will be collecting coats at our Holiday Victory Party on December 8th and at our Central Committee meeting on December 6th. Coats can also be dropped off at our Headquarters at 25 N. 14th Street (corner of Santa Clara) in San Jose weekdays from 10 am to 2 pm. (If special arrangements are necessary, just call 1-408-279-4570, and we’ll be happy to accommodate!) We will be collecting coats from now through January 4th.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or need further information.
Thank you – together we can make a difference.
