Project Warmth Coat & Blanket Sort #1

  • This location is shown only to members

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.

This would be 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.

    Yes, absolutely. The coats and blankets can be added to the others. The check can be given to Jane Sanders, who is head of Volunteer Services for The Salvation Army. She will be there Saturday. Thanks a bunch, Kat! Good job!!

    Cathy,

    I have collected coats and blankets at my office and someone has even given me a check for Project Warmth. I can just bring with, right?

    This is my first time being a part of such a large volunteer organization so I am not sure how everything works. If I RSVP for this event does that mean that I am agreeing to volunteer to help sort coats and blankets for Project Warmth? Is there a contact number I could call to talk to anyone at Serve Kansas City, I haven't had any luck finding one. Thank you. Also does it matter what group you are in. I saw one called the Hiking Group. I guess I just don't understand how this all works. Thanks again. Chelsey

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.
