Red Heart is proud to be sponsoring One Warm Coat this year. As the only national nonprofit working to provide clean, gently used warm coats to those in need, we think One Warm Coat is an ideal partner for our knit and crochet community. You are wonderful at helping people in need! And there is no more perfect “partner” to a warm coat than a cozy, colorful handmade scarf. Coat drives are organized and held in communities across the country. We invite you to join Red Heart in donating scarves and gently-used coats to a One Warm Coat drive near you.
