Stay Warm Winter Clothing Drive

Winter Coat Drive

Is it time to give your winter wardrobe an upgrade? Do you have more winter clothing than you want or need? Are some of your winter clothes too small or too big? If you answered yes to any of these questions, consider donating your extra or unwanted winter clothing items to the Stay Warm Winter Clothing Drive hosted by Buncombe County Health and Human Services in partnership with Sunrise Community for Recovery and Wellness.

Donations will be accepted Nov. 1-30, Monday-Friday from noon-4 p.m. in our Syringe Service Program (Disease Control) located at 40 Coxe Ave. We will accept gently used donations of the following items:

  • Winter coats
  • Scarves
  • Socks
  • Gloves
  • Shoes/Boots (no sandals)
  • Blankets

For your safety and ours, we are offering no contact donation drop off. We have donation bins located at The Syringe Service Program (Disease Control). Donations will be collected daily by our Harm Reduction Coordinator, cleaned, and prepared to be distributed to clients in need of warm clothing this winter.

“Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.” -Kathy Calvin
