The winter months can be unbearable without proper outerwear to stay warm in the frigid temperatures. Many of HOW's clients are in need of a winter coat in order to safely complete basic tasks like commuting to work, shopping for groceries, or grabbing a bit of fresh air. Help HOW clients stay safe and warm this season by donating a coat today.

Step 2

Look in your closet to see if you have a coat that matches the need; or buy a new coat for a client this year. Want to make shopping easier? Check out our Amazon list.
