Button & Zipper Coat Drive
Organized by: Ira Coleman
Button and Zipper has been focused on providing warmth to Chicagoland's homeless and at risk youth during the winter months since 2013. Throughout various communities, many individuals and businesses have given their efforts to collect and distribute gently used coats and jackets at selected drop off locations of the Chicagoland area. In our first winter we distributed 845 items, last winter we distributed 1,380 items, and this winter we are hoping to crush the goal of 1,500!!! The funds raised through Crowdrise will be allocated towards purchasing brand new coats for at risk youth during the months of the 2015-2016 winter.
