'Winter is Coming' ... Coats for a Cause

THE STORY:

Cold weather is fast-approaching! I am worried about the homeless!!! How will they stay warm??? 


This fundraiser will provide water-resistant jackets, which can transform into a sleeping bag, or be worn as an over-the-shoulder bag when not in use. EACH JACKET COSTS JUST $100


The Empowerment Plan is a Detroit based company that employs and trains homeless single parents to manufacture a garment that serves as both a coat and a sleeping bag. These coats are then distributed back to those in need across the nation. Through training and steady employment the individuals they hire are able to elevate themselves from the cycle of poverty. Within the first few months of working with their program, everyone is able to move off the streets or out of shelters into secure and furnished housing. They focus on empowering their team with the confidence and skills necessary for a more sustainable, financially stable and healthier life. 


THESE JACKETS ARE A WIN-WIN!!! ...... Coats for the homeless which provide work/income for those in need. Will you please donate to this great cause?
