The purpose of Project Warmth is to make extreme weather months more bearable for thousands of Kansas City area residents. Since Project Warmth was started in 1982 they have collected more than 2,200 tons of coats and blankets and more than $7.25 million for area children, families and the elderly.
All items collected are sorted and distributed through the Salvation Army and given to approximately 75 agencies and shelters in the 8-county metropolitan area.
100 volunteers are needed to unload 10-12 semi-trucks of donated coats and blankets and separate them into piles of women, men's children's coats, new items and blankets. The shift is from 3 - 6 PM. Dinner and beverages will be provided. Dress warmly.
Please share this opportunity with your family, friends, and coworkers!
This would be a great time to clean out your closets and donate any extra coats and blankets that you don't need. To learn more about Project Warmth visit their website at www.projectwarmthkc.com.
