Update for Winter 2023
FatFace and the FatFace Foundation are proud to be supporting One Warm Coat again this year to help them in their mission to provide free coats to children and adults across the USA. If you’re local to a US FatFace store, you can donate any new or gently worn coats between 17th Oct and 24th Dec 2023 and receive 15% off your in-store purchase. The FatFace Foundation has donated $15,000 this winter to help #sharethewarmth
In 2021 FatFace partnered with One Warm Coat whose mission aligns with our culture and values in Sustainability and Community.
One Warm Coat is a non-profit US based organization with a mission of providing free coats to children and adults while promoting volunteerism and environmental sustainability. 30 years ago, one woman with one coat sparked a movement that has led to over 43,000 coat drives across the United States, providing more than 7.3 million free, warm coats to children and adults while keeping more than 18 million pounds of textiles out of landfills. One Warm Coat believes in each person’s right to shelter from the elements and is committed to sharing warmth one coat at a time.
“We are honored to be able to partner with this incredible organization and help in their efforts of sharing warmth to all while making a positive impact on our planet.”
Between December 10th and December 24th, each store in the US collected gently used or new coats for all ages, then partnered with a local organization registered with OWC. Over 200 coats were collected in just 2 weeks! In addition to the coat contributions, FatFace Foundation provided a $2,500 sponsorship. Overall, the teams were able to provide warmth to over 2,700 children and adults for the 2021 season!
As a result of the incredible success from 2021, our US team will be partnering with OWC for the 2022 Holiday Season with a plan to make an even bigger impact. This year the stores will be collecting coats for 11 weeks, October 10th (World Homeless Day) through December 24th (Christmas Eve). FatFace Foundation has provided OWC with a sponsorship of $10,000! As a team, the goal is to provide warmth to over 12,000 children and adults this year between monetary and coat donations. This year OWC celebrates 30 years of spreading warmth, making our partnership for 2022 even more impactful and special.
