Coats for Colorado Donations 10/8-11/26

Beginning Tuesday, October 8, 2019 UCAR/NCAR staff are encouraged to donate clean, gently used or new coats in support of Coats for Colorado. Each UCAR/NCAR building will have a bin marked with the Coats for Colorado Logo located in its atrium/main entrance area. Employees are encouraged to donate lightly used or new coats in these bins.

While all sizes are needed, Coats for Colorado have the highest need for children's coats and men’s and women’s extra-large coats. Coats for Colorado is unable to accept rain boots, rain coats, snow boots, ski pants, hats, gloves, mittens, and scarves so please donate them elsewhere.

Coat collection will begin Tuesday, October 8th and go through Tuesday, November 26th at Noon.

In an effort to encourage the most coat donations possible, there will be a competition between each building on all campuses. The building that donates the most coats will win a prize!

Each building has a coat ambassador that should be watching the bins and taking the coats once full. If you see a full bin, feel free to email Anna at or Karrey at and we’ll be certain get them to Dependable Cleaners ASAP.

Announcement Timing: 
Tuesday, October 8, 2019 to Tuesday, November 26, 2019
