Chilly fall days and cold evenings have arrived in Southeastern Michigan. For those who are challenged to meet basic needs, a winter coat is an unaffordable luxury. Tapper’s Diamonds & Fine Jewelry seeks to help local residents stay warm this winter by hosting its annual Coat Drive. The Tapper’s 22nd Annual Coat Drive will be held October 14th through November 18th. Tapper’s, in partnership with Morgan Stanley, will accept cash donations for new coats, and gently used or new coats, hats, mittens and blankets at locations throughout Detroit.

“Each year Tapper’s collects about 2,500 coats, new hats, gloves and blankets and more than $20,000 to purchase new coats for those in need,” says Steven Tapper, custom jewelry designer and Vice President of Tapper’s Diamonds & Fine Jewelry. “We feel strongly about giving back to our community and with the support of local businesses, our generous residents and customers, we hope to make this our most successful effort to date,” he says.


Last year Tapper's raised over $22,000 that was used toward the purchase of brand-new coats. This year our goal is to raise $25,000! A $20 donation will provide a child with a coat and gloves. It is estimated this effort has provided more than 38,200 winter items to metro-Detroit area families throughout the years.


“The gift of warmth and comfort has more meaning and value than we can imagine,” says Tapper. “We urge everyone to share in this community experience that will change lives.”


Coats and warm winter items in all shapes are sizes are also welcome. Tapper’s handles distributing winter items, free of charge, directly to local residents in need and the organizations that support them. Should you like to drop off any gently used items, please feel free to do so at any one of our Metro Detroit locations: http://bit.ly/18PskZT
