Thanks to outerwear retailer Zumiez, homeless families are ready for winter this holiday season.
Every year since 2005, Zumiez has shipped more than 40 boxes of coats, hoodies, blankets, gloves and hats.
That’s 550 boxes of clothing in 13 years!
This year Zumiez sent us 42 boxes – 200 coats for men, women and children, 96 blankets, 96 adult hoodies, 120 hats, and 40 pairs of gloves.
Community organizers distribute the clothing at some of the 40+ shelters where they run outreach.
“It’s a generous donation that really helps people in need,” said Associate Director of Organizing Wayne Richard, who managed this year’s distribution.
