Local Business Holds Coat Donation Drive

No one should have to go without such a basic necessity as a coat. That’s why $1.99 Any Garment Cleaners, located at 5287 Marlton Pike West in the Point Shopping Center in Pennsauken, is collecting gently used coats to distribute directly to local children and adults.

Simply bring a gently used coat to $1.99 Any Garment Cleaners and the Pennsauken business will clean the coat and donate it to One Warm Coat, a community service effort assisting in the collection of clean, reusable coats and jackets for donation to local individuals free of charge. Since its inception in 1992, more than 400,000 coats have been provided to those in need at no cost.

“We are thrilled that so many people across the country have received coats to help them stay warm,” says Lois Pavlow, founder of One Warm Coat. “It’s such a simple and easy way to show you care for people in need.”
