Help each Empowerment Plan Board Member reach their fundraising goal to sponsor 10 Empowerment Plan coats for the homeless.
Each Empowerment Plan board member has a goal of raising a minimum of $1,000 to sponsor 10 coats for individuals in need in the community. At the end of the campaign, board members will come together for a distribution day to personally hand out the coats. I greatly appreciate your support with this challenge and your help impacting many through the jobs we create and the coats we make! Thank you!
The Empowerment Plan is a Detroit nonprofit organization focused on elevating individuals from homelessness through employment. We employ single parents from local shelters and train them in sewing and manufacturing to produce an innovative coat that can transform into a sleeping bag at night and an over-the-shoulder-bag during the day. In additional to full-time employment and on the job training, employees are presented with supplemental programming ensure they succeed personally and professionally. To date, the organization has produced and distributed 15,000 coats across 37 US states, 6 Canadian provinces, and 8 other countries.
