The Annual Check City Warm Hearts Coat Drive
Each November Check City puts on the Annual Check City Warm Hearts Coat Drive to help keep families warm in the winter. Join Check City’s annual winter charity by donating coats, sweaters, and blankets.
Every year Check City collects warm coats, sweaters, and blankets to donate to The Road Home, an organization that provides shelter and resources to families in need. The Road Home provides refuge, resources, and relief to individuals and families who need help.
All of The Road Home’s efforts are focused around their central purpose:
“Everything we do at The Road Home is to help people overcome homelessness and move back home. This includes nationally recognized best practices such as housing-first, progressive engagement, rapid re-housing, and housing navigation.”
Help Check City and The Road Home make the world a better, warmer place by donating your lightly used coats, sweaters, and blankets. Visit a Utah Check City Store near you to donate. When the Warm Hearts Coat Drive is over, we'll take all of these warm coat donations to The Road Home shelter and resource center to be distributed to members of the community who need them the most.
Follow Check City on social media to stay updated on all of our charity and community outreach efforts and see how you can get involved too!
