Since 2010, Alpine Shop customers have donated over 13,000 coats to help keep our communities warm during our winter coat drive. This year, we’re asking for your help in bringing in 1000 more as Alpine Shop kicks off it’s 12th annual One Warm Coat Drive on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at all Alpine Shop locations and at The Pathfinder in Manhattan, Ks.
How It Works
From Saturday, Nov. 11 through Wednesday, Nov. 22, we’ll accept clean, gently-used coats, jackets and sweaters at each and every Alpine Shop location.
• For each coat or sweater donated you will receive one entry into a drawing for one of five $250 Alpine Shop Gift Cards that we will give away when we reach our goal of 1000 coats. (Each Alpine Shop store must collect at least 100 coats to be eligible to give away a gift card. Help your local store out!)
• For your participation in the coat drive, you’ll also receive a $25 off coupon on your next full-price purchase of $125 or more at any Alpine Shop store. (Some exclusions apply.)
NOTE: Alpine Shop will only give away one coupon to each customer during the coat drive no matter how many different coats you donate. However, each item donated will still earn one entry into the gift card drawing.
How to Donate
Alpine Shop has made donating simple. Just bring your clean, gently used coats, jackets and sweaters to any Alpine Shop location. Bring your coats inside the store and check them in with one of the store’s outfitters to make sure you receive your coupon and get entered into the drawing. Then, Alpine Shop and One Warm Coat take care of the rest.
Donated coats will be split among organizations in St. Louis, including: Sunshine Ministries and St. Patrick Center. In O’Fallon, Ill., coats are split between the Violence Prevention Center in Belleville and the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center in East St. Louis. In Columbia, all coats will go to the Rainbow House. At The Pathfinder in Manhattan, Kan., all coats will be donated to the Salvation Army next door.
Not near one of our stores but still would like to participate? Pledge on your honor to donate a coat to an organization near you and you can take advantage of the offer above by using the code: WarmUp17 on-line at www.alpineshop.com.
