Coats for the Homeless
Help provide comfort and warmth for those in need!
People who are homeless or living in poverty have a difficult time protecting themselves against the elements, which makes them even more vulnerable to illness. A surprisingly large portion of the homeless population in the U.S. consists of children under the age of eighteen. Many homeless people report chronic health problems, like pneumonia.
Where the cold is intense, appropriate coats can help prevent sickness and deadly hypothermia in these vulnerable homeless populations. In other areas, appropriately weighted jackets can provide protection from the rain and other elements, helping bolster both comfort and health.
Soles4Souls, an organization dedicated helping those in need, plans to distribute 30,000 coats in the U.S. and 70,000 in seventeen other countries around the world. These coats will be distributed at homeless shelters, orphanages, schools, and community centers. Some will go to impoverished women who will have the option to sell them at the market — striking at the heart of women's poverty around the world, and providing essential financial assistance to families that need help.
You can help. Just $2 distributes one coat to someone in need. Your generous donation will help Soles4Souls receive, document, sort, package, and distribute coats in the U.S. and across the world.
Soles4Souls is a global not-for-profit institution dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty. Soles4Souls distributes shoes and clothing in two ways. Most new items are given directly to people in need, both in the U.S. and overseas. Soles4Souls also collects and sells used clothing, as well as some new items allocated by manufacturers, to create self-sustaining jobs that generate desperately needed revenues in impoverished communities like Haiti.
