Shannon (Accounts), Frank (Consultant), Adam (Consultant), and Spencer (Managing Director of Lettings) all got involved to help sort our coat donations!
Last year, Wrap Up London collected a total of 36,000 coats across the UK! We have our fingers crossed that this year the total is even higher; not only because more people will be kept warm during what is being forecasted to be a particularly cold winter, but because of the opportunities that are created when someone reaches out for help.
"For people facing crisis, the impact of receiving a coat can go further than just keeping warm. The coats collected by Wrap Up London offer a real opportunity for positive change. When a person at risk makes contact with a charity to collect a coat they receive practical help from that organisation and have the opportunity to accept ongoing support to change their situation long-term." (Wrap Up London)
For our part, Paramount Pantry will continue to collect coat donations all through the winter, because we know that there are many more unwanted coats out there taking up valuable wardrobe space that could make a big difference for someone this year. For people who do not have a coat to give away, we encourage those with the means to visit a charity shop this Christmas season to purchase a coat or two to donate. Every single one makes a difference!
* Sleep Out London is collecting donations until December 21st this year. If you would like to make a donation to help combat youth homelessness, or would like to get involved in the 2020 Sleep Out yourself, click here.
