The annual 'Share The Warmth' Coat Drive takes place during the month of October, and is hosted by Carry Maternity. It's our way of supporting young mothers as we head into colder weather.
Carry Maternity collaborates with Jessie’s Centre, an organization focused on providing young pregnant women and young parents proper resources in order to fulfill a healthy pregnancy and beyond. Their services include counseling, high school education, health services, and housing support. They are committed to providing a space for women that is safe, inclusive, diverse, and judgment-free.
Carry truly believes Jessie’s services are important to a healthy community, which is why we invite you to participate by donating your gently used women’s and children's coats.
As a thank you for your donation, we’re offering your choice of either:
Jessie’s Centre experiences an annual dip in attendance during the coldest months of the year. Without a warm coat to wear, the weather can create a barrier to the services that young families need to thrive.
As we go through our closets in preparation for the change of season, it’s a great time to evaluate what we have, what we need, and what is taking up space. Please consider giving your coat a second life with a meaningful donation.
