Heartfelt Scarves for One Warm Coat

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.

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.
