From November 29th thru December 10th join Team Cleary in collecting new or gently used winter coats! This year we’re partnering with the Van Buren Center to give the gift of warmth to our less fortunate neighbors. Also needed are hats, gloves, scarves and blankets but only new items can be accepted.

Does the coat you bought last year not fit? Are you planning to purchase any great deals for winter gear? Bring your new or gently used donations to our office at 989 Old Henderson Road 43220 during business hours Mon – Fri 8am to 5pm.

Did you know the 2022 The Old Farmer’s Almanac says we’re in for one of the coldest winters in years? Central Ohioans should be prepared for below-average temperatures that could also bring a lot of snow. The coldest periods can be expected to occur in mid- to late November and through much of the period from mid-December through January.

90% of homeless adults need a new, warm coat each winter because they have no place to keep one over the summer months. That means coat drives play an important role every year in making sure everyone has equal access to warm clothing during the colder months. Your donation will help make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate and give them hope, comfort, and warmth this winter season.

We appreciate your help & care!
