Since 2010, Alpine Shop customers have donated over 7000 coats to help keep our communities warm during our winter coat drive. This year, we’re asking for your help in bringing in 1000 more as Alpine Shop kicks off it’s ninth annual One Warm Coat Drive on Monday, November 24, 2014 at all Alpine Shop locations.
How It Works
From Monday, Nov. 24 through Sunday, December 7, we’ll accept clean, gently-used coats, jackets and sweaters at each and every Alpine Shop location.
• For each coat or sweater donated you will get one entry into a drawing for one of four $250 Alpine Shop Gift Cards that we will give away when we reach our goal of 1000 coats.
• For your participation in the coat drive, you’ll also receive a $30 off coupon to Alpine Shop.
NOTE: Alpine Shop will only give away one coupon to each customer during the coat drive no matter how many different coats you donate. However, each item donated will still earn one entry into the gift card drawing.
How to Donate
Alpine Shop has made donating simple. Just bring your clean, gently used coats, jackets and sweaters to any Alpine Shop location. Bring your coats inside the store and check them in with one of the store’s outfitters to make sure you receive your coupon and get entered into the drawing. Then, Alpine Shop and One Warm Coat take care of the rest.
Donated coats will be split among organizations in St. Louis, including: Sunshine Ministries, St. Patrick Center, Coats for Kids and Edgewood Children’s Center. In Columbia, all coats will go the Salvation Army.
Here’s a little bit of what your donations have meant to the St. Patrick Center in St Louis.
Thanks again for thinking of SPC for your One Warm Coat Drive. The coats we received were distributed immediately. Case Managers were able to support their clients and families as were people in the community in need. All of the coats were distributed within 2 days of receiving. It was especially gratifying with the quality (gently used) coats that clients received.
Thanks again to you and your customers for your support of our clients and community.
