BND Rhode Island Coat Drive

Current donations help support the sock and underwear drive - SPARE A PAIR! Because we require NEW and UNOPENED items, monetary donations will be leveraged to purchase bulk socks and undergarments for adults across Rhode Island. 

------------

The BND Coat Exchange began over 20 years ago when founder Greg Gerritt decided to channel his love of the environment into a charitable cause. Annually occurring on Black Friday, Buy Nothing Day invites you to give rather than spend, and to repurpose rather than toss. Each Friday after Thanksgiving, those in need of warmth meet at donation sites around the state to receive gently-used winter gear. Whether taking a coat or donating one, you’ll always be met with a smile.

Maybe you donated all your coats last year, but still want to support the cause. This is a great way to do so! You will have an immediate impact on this event and the lives it touches. 

Funds raised this year will help with any COVID-19-related precautions we have to take after the postponement of the event. This includes social-distancing markers, hand sanitizer, and masks for those coming to volunteer and shop. 

Thank you!
