Donate Coats to Reinhart’s 23rd Annual Coat Drive October 29th – November 30th

Reinhart Coat Drive Ann Arbor Michigan

For the 23rd year, Reinhart Realtors is teaming up with our agents and with the people of Washtenaw County (that’s you!) to collect winter coat donations. From October 29th through November 30th, you can bring new and gently used coats to any of our Charles Reinhart Sales Offices and to any open house hosted by a Reinhart agent during the month of November.

We have six office locations total: four in Ann Arbor, one in Chelsea and one in Saline. To see those specific locations, click here. And to preview all our open houses and find out where and when you can drop off in your neighborhood, click here.

In 2018, our goal is to collect 2,000 total coats for adults and children. Last year, with your help, we collected more than 1,100, and over the last 23 years of the Reinhart Coat Drive, we’ve collected more than 23,000 coats!

These have been distributed to local agencies, programs and organizations throughout Washtenaw County, including Ann Arbor Community Center, Dawn Farm, The Women’s Center of Southeastern Michigan and Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels. The list of agencies includes more than 30 total and these are located in communities all over Washtenaw County.

Together, they’re all working to ensure the homeless, struggling and underserved in our communities are cared for. Here in Michigan, that care becomes even more necessary during the biting winter months. According to Washtenaw Housing Alliance, more than 4,600 people experienced homelessness over the course of one year in 2014 and 38% of those were families with young children.

Whether living on the streets or in homes without adequate heating, these families struggle to stay warm during the fall, winter and even the early spring. And if you’ve lived in the mitten very long, you understand why. Here in Ann Arbor, we get an average of 57 inches of snowfall each year and our average low temperature in January is just 18 degrees.

So join the cause with us this November and bring a new or gently used coat to one of our offices or open houses.

 

We hope to see you soon!

Coat donations can be dropped at any of our six Charles Reinhart Sales Offices and at any open house hosted by a Reinhart agent during the month of November. You can see our office locations here and our list of upcoming open houses here.
