Over 41 million people live below the poverty level in the U.S., and are in need of coats.
For the 13th consecutive year, Burlington Stores, the national off-price retailer, continues its commitment to provide coats to those in need nationwide. Burlington Stores and the national non-profit organization Delivering Good, join together to keep neighbors warm through the Burlington Coat Drive.
TrueNorth Community Services' Coats for Kids (& Adults), in its 29th year, is a recipient agency for the Burlington Coat Drive.
Each year during the holiday season, Burlington customers donate new and gently worn coats at their local Burlington store.
This year, Oscar-winning actor, artist and activist Common, along with his Common Ground Foundation, launched the campaign in his hometown of Chicago. The coats collected help those in need stay warm.
While the Coat Drive continues to be a national initiative, all donated coats remain close to home and are distributed to those in need of warmth within store communities. As a thank you, those customers who donate a coat receive 10 percent off their entire Burlington purchase, valid now through January 20, 2020.
Please help spread the word to spread the warmth – donate a coat at any Burlington store through January 20, 2020. To learn more and find a store, visit Burlington.com.
