Delivering Good

Burlington Coat Event

Thank You!

A big THANK YOU to our friends at Burlington for donating 50,000 new coats during their annual Coat Event! Their generosity will help keep tens of thousands of our less fortunate neighbors warm in communities across the US this winter. 

Burlington Coat Event

For many families and individuals throughout the United States, finding a warm winter coat is a challenge each year. Coats provide warmth and safety during frigid weather and are essential items for people in need. 

Delivering Good works with hundreds of local nonprofit partners nationwide, matching them to their local Burlington store so that donated coats are kept within the store community. When an individual donates a coat to their Burlington Store, the coat is donated to a family or individual in need in their community.

This year, in addition to collecting gently used coats at their stores, Burlington is donating a NEW coat for each one purchased up to 50,000 coats! This incredible generosity will provide warmth, comfort, and dignity to tens of thousands of men, women, and children in need in communities across the US where Burlington associates live and do business. 

New coats provide more than just warmth:

"I saw a little girl, named Charlene, clutching her new coat, and crying at our recent distribution event. I asked Charlene what was wrong, and why she was crying. She responded: “Nothing is wrong Mr. Tom; it is just that I have never had my very own jacket that I actually got to pick out. I’ve always had to wear my older brother’s hand-me-down coats that are so ugly and don’t fit me at all. My new jacket is so pretty, and it fits me perfect! I’m crying because I am so happy to have a nice jacket to wear to school this year and I don’t have to feel embarrassed about how I look.”
