Burlington's Warm Hearts and Warm Coats Drive

With the next holiday being Thanksgiving, I am giving thanks for all of my blessings including a home, food  my health and knowing that I will have a warm coat to wear this winter. So many people go without these basics. I pray anything I do can help brighten at least one person's day. Sometimes I wish I could do more, but then I remember these words...

It's not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.
-Mother Teresa

I usually donate my clothes to the Salvation Army or Goodwill. But I make sure that I leave some coats aside for Burlington Coat Factory's Annual Warm Hearts and Warm Coats Drive to donate every year. If you don't have a coat, you could also donate to One Warm Coat on the Burlington site. I love this drive because it's so rewarding to know these coats go directly to people that need them. Along with the donation, you receive a 10 percent coupon for anything in the store. And they have great little Christmas gifts there I must say!

I found two cute things...

What are some of your favorite charities and organizations? Please share below:)


  1. We have a Burlington Nearby too....and I always donate to Salvation Army of one of the kiddos charities for clothing or new very sweet of you to mention those in need....bloggers rock!!

  2. Burlington coat factory is far from me....we don't have any in the city but there is one by my parent's and I should donate a coat there this year. I like pajama program, they provide brand new pj sets to kids who are displaced or having to stay in shelters. $10 buys a new set, and while I've never been in such a dire situation, I can only image begin 5 or 6 years old, and having to move from home to home. here is the site, I hope you check it out....
