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.

    The people in charge of Project Warmth didn't provide much instruction and just kind of left everyone to their own devices. They didn't seem very well organized, which made it difficult for the volunteers to help efficiently.

    This was a wonderful day! Great opportunity to help those in need of staying warm for the winter. Met some great friends, too.

    Wow, that was a lot of work! It was incredible seeing all those coats and blankets. Literally mountains of coats. I think there were 13 truck loads and one truck that never made it. We almost got it all sorted too!

    Arlita, we're not too far from Town Center, so would be happy to carpool with you but we do have to leave at 6:00 for another engagement. Would that work?

    PJ, we'll be meeting at the warehouse at the address above unless we want to try and setup some carpools. I'll be coming from the OP area but will likely already have a full car. If I have time I'll do a drive-by on the location to give some more detailed directions.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
